Male teachers fill a niche

THE recent article by Nithya Siddhu, titled A rare and special species (StarEducate June 17), is excellent.

There are few male teachers nowadays, and it must be remembered that primary school boys need a role model of sorts to look up to.

Even young girls can benefit from having a good, strong male figure in their lives.

Girls can learn to be competitive, assertive, confident, and what it means to persevere.

With many households lacking a father figure, male teachers can to a certain extent play a role.
