7. There is a bit of a stigma on males in that line of work.

IIRC there was a really good report from ABC on the exact topic. The gist of it being that there are quite a bit of mistrust on the parent's part in regards to sexual stereotypes. Basically questioning if it was even appropriate for young (especially single) men to be teaching young children.

I would think that would weigh pretty heavy on the teacher and may dissuade them from even seeking a job in that particular environment.
