So, if you want more male teachers in the school system, it seems to me
you've got to offer them the kind of wages which are competitive with the
sorts of wages that other profressionals earn. Historically, women were
accepting low wages because they were not relied upon to provide the main
breadwinning wage to support a family. As long as they were provided
room and board and the odd fresh chicken, they'd teach the children.

By and large, however, teaching was considered women's work. This

We might want to consider looking at all these low paying jobs that women
are currently doing and do everything possible to get men equally involved.

One thing that puzzles me: Why is it that women will accept low wages for
work that men simply wouldn't accept as wages? It seems to me that women
need to learn to become more aggressive barterers. This is why I'm so glad
to see all these assertiveness training courses geared towards women.
There's no need for women to be weak-willed, silent and accepting of
whatever little is offered them. The wimmins need to learn to *roar* much
louder! Dig in and get their fair share! ;-)
Ah well...all in due time! ;-)
