Including more males in the classroom
In my story today, I wrote about efforts to increase the number of males in schools.
For whatever reason, males have been noticeably absent from the school setting. Recently there have been initiatives to reverse that. The program that I found at one Howard County elementary school encourages fathers at the school to spend the day helping out teachers, and serving as an addition set of adult eyes in the hallways.
What do you think about increasing the number of males in the school? Is it necessary? What other creative ways might work to accomplish this?
