The future does look dim. In my experience, most of the school systems are still dominated by women, especially at the elementary level. While I was in training to be an educator, I was the minority. In many classes I was the only male. Who do we contact about getting more men hired, that are certified, at the elementary level? Many want us, but we don’t even get called for interviews. We are faced with discrimination and a lot of prejudice too. I’m debating either leaving New York state or changing careers. There is a need for teachers, but where? And with our technology nothing is personal anymore. Who reads (ha) resumes now?
