An Examination of Gender Differences among Teachers in Jamaican Schools.
Wilkins, Julia; Gamble, Robert J.
Multicultural Education, v7 n4 p18-20 Sum 2000
Examines the history of education in Jamaica, then discusses why there is an absence of male teachers in younger grades. Interviews with teachers and principals from six primary and elementary schools indicate that, similar to educational staff in North America, respondents have stereotyped attitudes regarding the teaching of young children being the realm of women.
