Are we experiencing the "death" of the male teacher? According to the Macquarie University in the next 40 years we may have no male teachers at all. The report explained that in 1977 about 28.5 per cent of teaching staff in Australian primary schools were male. Men now make up about 18 per cent of teaching staff. In Tasmania that number is slightly higher, about 20 per cent. And high schools that number increases with about 40 per cent of the teaching staff men. According to Macquarie University the figures are expected to drop by 5 per cent in the next 10 years.
