I don’t know, I think they’ve succeeded

Winner of “most ambiguous” headline of the year goes to:

failing teachers

Male teachers are essential to a balanced education.  There are critical phases in boys’ lives where strong male role models play a significant role, and you can see different sides of boys blossoming.

The education sector is trying very hard to get more men involved, so much so that during job interviews, male applicants have a natural advantage (all things being equal) simply because schools are hanging out for more male teachers, especially in primary and intermediate schools.

The problem is of course the perception that all men are to be considered suspect for wanting to be near children in the first place.  And can you blame the public?   The constant parade of dodgy teachers that couldn’t act professionally is tainting the profession, and no sane male is going to choose a career where, at best, he’s considered a sex pest in waiting.

We are simply reaping the hysterical fruit of making all men potential sex offenders (until proven innocent).

Pretty sad state of affairs, if you ask me.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
