SA has highest proportion of male teaching staff in Australia
Almost one-third (31.3%) of South Australia's teaching staff was male in 2009, the highest proportion of all states and territories in Australia according to a report released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
South Australia has maintained its number one position despite the proportion of male teaching staff in schools falling from 37.5% in 1993.
Between 1993 and 2009 the number of full-time students enrolled in government schools fell by 11.9% whilst the number enrolled in non-government schools increased by 44.9%.
In 2009 35.8% of all full-time students in South Australia were enrolled in non-government schools. Only the ACT (42.6%) and Victoria (36.4%) recorded higher proportions.
Teaching staff numbers in independent schools almost doubled (up 90.7%) between 1993 and 2009 with an increase of 53.2% recorded in catholic schools over the same period. The number of teaching staff in government schools in 2009 was 9.5% lower than the number in 1993.
