Male primary teachers make up a minority of the primary teachingprofession in countries such as Australia, England and the United Statesof America. This minority status can result in male primary teachersfeeling socially isolated within their schools, and consequently choosingto leave the profession. This gender-related challenge is known, yetprevious research has primarily focused on deconstructing and criticallyexamining issues of gender in primary school contexts; rather thanidentifying practical coping strategies these men can use to deal with itand persist in the profession. Consequently, this research used surveysand interviews to identify and analyse the coping strategies experiencedmale primary teachers use to deal with their social isolation.
