The Sunday doco “A few Good Men” shown last year has had a huge impact.  It has resulted in early childhood groups taking up the challenge and not ignoring it for another 10 years or more. There is now finally agreement across the early childhood sector that we should have men in teaching. And the Ministry of Education and officials are feeling the pressure for change. It’s now up to the sector to develop a successful strategy for improving the situation and hopefully we’ll be able to look back in the years to come and consider it strange that such sexism existed.
