The above mentioned journal has their current issue focused entirely on the topic of men working in the early childhood profession. The articles can be found at: http://mensstudies.metapress.com/content/vk7n6v12v726/?p=23d3b80c96ec4c169323bdc9827b59f8&pi=0
There are six articles in this issue & include:

Race, Sexual Orientation, Culture and Male Teacher Role Models: "Will Any Teacher Do as Long as They Are Good?" Douglas Gosse

"Let's Hear it for the Men": A Men's Studies Curriculum in the School System. Gordon Weber & Andrew Kitchenham.

Let's hope that by having such a collection of scholarly articles on the subject that more men will be encouraged to consider early childhood education as a career. It would also be advantageous for more publications on the topic to follow so that the focus on more men remains at the forefront of the minds of all stakeholders.
