N.C. Struggles to Attract Male Teachers

Record #:
The state is below the national average in the percentage of male teachers in the classroom, being 19 percent compared to the national 27 percent. Only 14,611 of the state's 76,815 teachers are male. Among factors contributing to this are the low pay compared to other professions and the old bias of \"you're not manly if you're a teacher - unless you're the coach.\"
