In the past, teaching was considered a male-dominated profession in the United States. When the country’s public-school system was formed in the middle of the 19th century, a substantial shift in the gender composition of the profession occurred. Similar to how schoolhouse doors opened, the sphere of education also became available to children from all socioeconomic classes and genders. In actuality, women who couldn’t or didn’t want to be homemakers had few alternative work options since the decision to educate young children had been firmly entrenched as a “feminine” one within a few decades. “World’s Most Influential Women in Education to Follow, 2022,” has many stories like Roslyn Clark Artis that inspire us to visioning a bright future.
