Bob writes that men don't go into teaching because of pay, and women
don't go into technology because of socialization.

I disagree. I believe that socialization and discrimination are the
dominate reason for both the lack of men in teaching and the lack of
women in technology.

In fact it is easy to show that it is not pay that keeps men out of
teaching. Secondary School teachers have the same average pay as
Primary School teachers according to the NCES. The former has as many
men as women and the latter is dominated by women. I conclude that it
is not pay which is keeping men out of primary school education.
