Abstract

At risk: Physical education teacher David Patten works at St Leonards Primary School and is one of just 20 per cent of male school teachers in Tasmania. Picture: Paul Scambler Male school teachers may be extinct in government primary schools in under 40 years if "urgent policy action" is not taken, a new report says. And by the year 2067, primary schools may have no male teachers at all.
