At some point in their career, many teachers will start to notice a difference in the way teachers are treated depending on how their gender presents.
They might notice that parents are more critical of women teachers, especially those teaching STEM subjects. Maybe they’ll notice that administration fawns over and praises male teachers for doing the same things that female teachers are expected to do without recognition. Or perhaps they’ll see a significant difference in how men and women are treated by students.
Recently a Reddit user posed this question:
Does anyone else feel like female teachers are treated worse by students, admin and parents than male teachers? from Teachers
Here’s what they had to say.
The prevailing theme in the Reddit thread: By and large, women teachers have it worse when it comes to treatment and expectations from students, parents, and admin. Male teachers may be expected to take on certain tasks, but these tasks pale in comparison with the extras that women teachers are expected to take on. Not to mention, the added insult of the near-heroic praise male teachers get for the “extras” women teachers do all the time.
We’re not asking for preferential treatment, just equal respect.
We’ll end on what can best be described as this Reddit thread’s mic drop:
