1) Do you want to volunteer to work with children?
Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for low-income children across the country, helping the students develop the academic and leadership skills they need to succeed in high school, college, the workplace, and civic life: /node/1051

2) Bureau of Labor Statistics data can be misleading
A member of MenTeach wrote: The Department of Labor Statistics are misleading for men, particularly Black men. Did you know Black men make up 1% of elementary school teachers in America. The statistics lump men and women together. Time to be real on this fact! Read the MenTeach reply: /node/1054

6) Stories about male teachers making a difference
I bumped into a veteran teacher I know and she told me this is one of her favorite times of the year because former students usually invite her to their graduation ceremonies.

7) Male actor heading to the classroom
Actor Tony Danza is heading back to the classroom to front his own reality TV show about education. The former Taxi star, 58, admits he is struggling to find work as an actor, so he has decided to spend a year teaching 10th grade English at a New York City school – and film it for an as-yet-untitled series. And Danza, who earned a degree in history education from Iowa’s University of Dubuque before launching his acting career, insists the programme will carve out a new genre for reality TV.

8) Malaysian men don’t rule in school
With June being the month to celebrate Father’s Day, I found my gaze swiveling towards the “fatherly” figures we have in our schools. I am referring, of course, to the male teachers who dot our teaching landscape. I say “dot” because the men among us teachers are certainly dwindling in numbers!

Yes, my ladies – it’s us who rule the schools these days. Where have all the men gone?

In my school, which has 90 teachers, only 18 are men! Since most of them are more middle-aged than young, it made me wonder – are young men shying away from the teaching profession these days? Read her editorial: /node/1068
