So, Western Australia is pushing for more male teachers in primary school.
Ok, so they're not offering them more money, they're not promising them additional protection against false allegations, they're just "pushing".
Great. Let's see how that one goes.
I'm sure the "27.4 per cent" of males studying education (up from "20 per cent" in 2012) is across education, not just in primary schooling. Also, there's a BIG difference between studying and actually finishing. How many men will complete their degree to become a primary school teacher once they sit the obligatory "you're at risk of false accusations, also you're going to be a suspected pedophile for most of your career" class.
Oh wait, they don't warn them about that, they just let them find out for themselves.
