The Missing Male Teacher: An Interview with Shaun Johnson

School districts and teacher preparation programs should collaborate more and schools should promote gender equality and social justice to help alleviate the lack of male teachers in U.S. public schools according to a new Education Policy Brief from the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy (CEEP) at Indiana University. The study called “The Status of Male Teachers in Public Education Today” by Shaun P. Johnson, a graduate research assistant at CEEP, concludes that the lowest percentage of male teachers in decades–only 1 in 10 elementary school teachers is a man–is a threat to gender equality, social justice, and other democratic values. Johnson speaks about his findings in this short video.
