How Education is Sexist Against Men

One of the biggest myths in education is that the lack of male teachers is being addressed.

This is pure rubbish.

Can anyone name me a strategy or policy that seeks to promote or incentivise the career to men?

You can’t? Of course not. None exists!

And for all the talk that there is concern about the lack of male teachers, the numbers tell a totally different story. Statistics clearly show a mark decrease in representation.

Between 1977 and 2016 we see a drop in male representation from 28.5 per cent to 18 per cent in primary schools and from 54 per cent to 40 per cent in high schools, Australia-wide.

Whenever a female gender gap in representation exists, such as in STEM courses at university level, scholarships programs have been instituted in the name of diversity.

But here’s the thing.

It is ILLEGAL for universities to give scholarships to men in areas where they are underrepresented! That’s right, illegal!

How is that fair? How is that not sexist?

Statistics indicate that the disparity will get worse. And who could be surprised.

Nobody seems to care!
