Jobs for the boys

29 March 2004, 16:03 PM in Current Affairs

I just saw this article in The Age where Mark Latham promises to deliver 'thousands' of new male teachers...by targeting boys in years 10, 11 and 12 through a campaign to promote the 'status and benefits of teaching', create 'pathways' for boys to become teachers and encourage older male teachers to act as mentors.

Did I miss something? Was it not Mr Latham who shot down the government's attempt to offer more places to male student teachers to increase numbers? And an advertising campaign targeted at male high school students is the best alternative the opposition can come up with?

Mr Latham, please make up your mind, either you believe we need more male teachers or you don't.
