I see from The Shulchan Aruch Even Ezer 22.20 and from Shulchan Aruch Harav, Hilchois Talmud Torah, perek 1 halocho 13 that single man should not be a teacher of children (under 13) becouse of the mothers (woman) that bring the children

What is the practice in different communities?

If it is permitted, what are the sources?

    The primary concern is one of yichud, as the mothers of the young children bring their kids to school. The easy solution is to segregate drop-off/pick-up environments from the teachers, and that all interactions with parents be with either both parents, or the same sex as the teacher. – Isaac Kotlicky Jun 23 '15 at 16:30
  • @isaackotlick what is the source that the problem is yichud, from the source I brought your solution helps except the part of both parents – hazoriz Jun 23 '15 at 16:47

    @Isaackotlicky I found it, yichud is a problem by a GIRL teacher that is not married, even ezer 22.20 מי שאין לו אשה לא ילמד תינוקת מפני שאמות הבנים באות לבית הספר לבניהם ונמצא מתגרה בנשים וכן אשה לא תלמד קטנים מפני אבותיהם שהם באים בגלל בניהם ונמצאו מתייחדין עמה ואין המלמד צריך שתהיה אשתו שרויה עמו בבית הספר אלא היא בביתה והוא מלמד במקומו: – hazoriz Jun 23 '15 at 17:46
