A lengthy article but well worth reading to the end, as we’d expect with anything from William Collins. He starts with this:
In this long article I take a look at what is being done to encourage women to take up STEM professions in which they are the minority. Specifically I will concentrate on mechanical engineering and physics. My purpose is to contrast this with what is being done to encourage men into a profession in which they are the minority, namely teaching.
We note his support for an option for boys to be taught in predominantly male environments, a position he shares with Herbert Purdy and Chris McGovern, who leads the Campaign for Real Education. We support the idea too, as you’ll see on pp15-17 of our election manifesto.
