For young men its the social pressure of masculine ideals, for older people it would be the issue of a pay cut that is keeping men out of the classroom, lead author Kevin McGrath told 6PR Breakfast.

Our listeners had their say on the topic: John says perception of child abuse is the number one reason men are no longer teaching.
