This paper argues there is a need for more men and 'blokes' in the Primary School teaching workforce. The argument is supported with reference to recent data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) about overall student academic performance among Australian students and the contributing effect of poor classroom management. It is also supported by data derived from research undertaken with parents and Year 6 Primary School students in Sydney, Australia.
