Where in the World Are the Men in Early Care and Education? Updates and Program Highlights from around the Globe
Piburn, Donald Edward
Young Children, v65 n3 p46-50 May 2010
A gender-diverse workforce is becoming the global goal for high-quality early childhood programming. Having a balance of female and male early care and education (ECE) professionals supports greater flexibility in the gender role expectations of young children and helps girls and boys avoid stereotypic assumptions about gender. This article lists organizations around the world that share a common belief that experiencing gender equality in early childhood education is good for young children, their families, and society. They advocate recruiting men and encouraging them to remain in early care and education.
