Classrooms need more male teachers, charity says
England's classrooms need more male teachers, an education charity says, as government figures show a continued gender gap in the profession. Department for Education statistics show 26% of teachers in England are men - accounting for 38% of secondary and 15% of primary school teachers. To mark World Teachers' Day, the charity Teach First is urging more men to consider a career in the sector. It says the profession should reflect the make-up of the classroom.
