Johnston, John; McKeown, Eamonn; McEwen, Alex
Journal of Education for Teaching, v25 n1 p55-64 Apr 1999
Surveyed male and female preservice elementary teachers regarding factors influencing their decisions to become teachers. Females were motivated by perceived intrinsic aspects of elementary teaching but emphasized perceived extrinsic aspects. Males were aware of the feminization of elementary teaching but considered a male presence in elementary schools important. Males understood they had to confront societal negativity about their career choice. (SM)
