Men in Early Childhood Education. Research and Information Report. Third Draft.
The argument is presented that men do not avoid careers in early childhood education simply because they lack commitment to or care little for young children; rather, they avoid such work because economic conditions in early childhood education are poor and the potential of men to contribute to the field is not well understood by educators. Subtopics addressed include the potential for male involvement in the education of young children, the rationale for including men in the profession, the qualities of male teachers of young children, additional reasons for low levels of male involvement, and the future prospects for men in early childhood education.
