Tragedy they don't apply'
"Headteachers will always have to look for the best person for the job, so bias is out of the picture," John Nethercott, vice-president of the Association of Head Teachers Scotland, said. "I cannot believe heads would ignore a man because he's a man."
Mr Nethercott, headteacher of Aviemore primary, added: "It's
a tragedy that so few men feel primary education is an attractive career, although I don't think anybody has come up with the answer."
