Role models

‘More music teachers are role models for minority students than teachers of any other subject. Thirty-six per cent of surveyed minority students identified music teachers as their role models, compared to 28 per cent for English teachers, 11 per cent for elementary teachers, and seven per cent for physical education teachers.’
