  1. We still hold this view of gender roles in both society and in the branches of family life. It wouldn’t be acceptable in many households, even today for males to work as a teacher. Especially in Elementary. They need to be in the administration side or they aren’t a “Real Man”.

    • I am writing this as a social justice issue for my paper for sociology, I have the same view. I also feel as male teacher constantly have anxiety. It only takes one person to see a male teacher as crossing the line from being nurturing to being questioned for inappropriate conduct.
