Here it seems female teachers are always more than male ones. Perhaps women are more careful and patient and they like to stay with children much more. And besides teaching is a stable career and it is good for a family. I personally hope there will be more male teachers because they have some characters which are good for the children.

Yes I think male teachers can be very good role models too.

But perhaps men like to do some big things and therefore they seem to be less interested in teaching.

I also think that teachers are suitable jobs for women.

Eh, depends on the demographics, what grade is being taught and what subject, etc. Here in the USA, some male teachers post a liability issue....

That's great! Here perhaps there will be more male teachers in the universities.

Maybe the pay is not that good so males find another job that pays more.

In fact here the teacher's salary and treatment has increased a lot.

I'm not sure... I still see balanced between male and female teachers.
