MALE MENTORS FOR BOWTIE
REAL MALE TEACHERS & LEADERS
Students need them. Schools need them. More than ever, their presence is crucial. So where have all the good men gone?

BOWTIE has the positive and influential males that each student body needs!
A FEW GOOD MEN POEM
First, men represent an underutilized talent pool. If we could attract more males to teaching, school districts would have an easier time hiring outstanding individuals. The point is not that men are better teachers, but that highly qualified men are far less likely to apply for teaching jobs.
Second, boys in particular benefit from the presence of male role models in the classroom. As Stanford University professor Thomas Dee has documented, in a study of more than 20,000 middle-school students, boys perform better when they have a male teacher, and girls perform better when they have a female teacher.
