Massachusetts teaching force remains dominated by women

By Matt Rocheleau - Boston Globe Staff
Despite efforts to recruit more male teachers, their numbers in Massachusetts public school classrooms remain stagnant, according to a Globe review.

About 25 percent of all public school teachers statewide last year were men. That figure has been fairly flat in recent years. But the share of male teachers is lower than it was in the early 1990s, when it was about 32 percent.

The teacher gender disparity is most pronounced at the elementary grades.
