Classrooms need more male teachers, charity says

by Katherine Sellgren BBC News education reporter
England's classrooms need more male teachers, an education charity says, as government figures show a continued gender gap in the profession.

Department for Education statistics show 26% of teachers in England are men - accounting for 38% of secondary and 15% of primary school teachers.

To mark World Teachers' Day, the charity Teach First is urging more men to consider a career in the sector.
