Men, Pre-service Training and the Implications for Continuing Professional Development.
Thornton, Mary
Journal of In-service Education, v27 n3 p477-90 2001
Surveyed British male preservice elementary teachers regarding their views on operating within a female dominated profession. Age and/or wider life experiences influenced their initial recruitment and course success. Though respondents were deeply committed to elementary teaching, they recognized that being male was likely to lead to rapid promotion. Among younger respondents, "trap door" entry (falling into teaching) was prevalent. (SM)
