Is the Male Teacher Becoming Extinct?

Is the Male Teacher Becoming Extinct?Short answer: no.

ETFO Provincial hosted a symposium on the topic of males in eduction in Toronto. Our Greater Essex Local was represted by seven members.

The symposium included a variety of speakers, panel presentations, and facilitated discussion groups. It provided an opportunity to examine issues related to males in education from a position of knowledge. Participants were provided with opportunities to question the myths, explore the realities, and to develop recommendations for change. It was a full and thought-provoking day.

A binder from the symposium containing speakers' notes and reference lists is available to members at the local office.
