The men engaged in education are now a minority increasingly residual and this invisible evidence is discussed shortly, as if it were a natural fact that to deal with education are only women. Yet it was not always so, just think of the figure of the teacher as an educator of elementary- school services. What led to the disappearance of men from the world of education? And what effect is having on the practices and actors? The loss of social prestige and the weakening of the charge transformative education may explain, in part, the absence of men, without underestimating the changes that affect the male gender: the crisis of father figures, the principle of authority and responsibility. Education seems, then, reduced to the dimension of care, with an exclusively female, while weakening the role-play and the differences that mark the comparison between generations. And is perhaps the symptom of a wid-er crisis that foreshadows new horizons in which they placed their young men, in contrast, chose to commit themselves as educators.
