My son is 11years old & in the 5th grade. He is currently working on his “Career Museum” project and we really appreciated the editorial from 10/5/05. Do you have any more current statistics regarding the percentage of men teachers, especially in primary education?

My son has wanted to be a teacher since Kindergarten. His best teacher to date was his male Kindergarten teacher. He has related very well to both male teachers he has had in his school life.

Thank you again for this interesting short article and for the encouragement you pass on to young men interested in molding young minds.
