For the record, I'm cool with sisters teaching at all-girls' schools. But for co-ed classes, boys, or religion classes, for God's sake (literally) use men.

Nuns are heavily over-romanticized because of their perceived innocence and sweetness, and their association with pre-Vatican II memories. I'm not trying to knock on the positive experiences of those of you venerable FishEaters who lived in the era. But I am saying it's a less-than-ideal model which capitalizes on free labor because Catholics are apparently cheapskates. So because sisters and little old church secretaries are willing to work for less money or free, the average church today is run by one nominal priest and a gaggle of women. And since the priests tend to be weak men themselves, the hens are running the harem. It's a perverse situation.

Come on HK. You know very well that is not the situation. If there are no men involved in a Church it is because they chose to be. 

Keep in mind that a mother's role is partly defined by teaching. Female teachers are by no means inferior to males. I have no issue with male teachers, but you are insulting one to raise the other. Your issue should be that there are no real Catholic men, or real men becoming priests, not that women have stepped up to the job.

This is the same as lambasting single mothers for being the only parent, while it was the father who left.
