Susan said "...primary reason given for this is that females are ignored by
their teachers who concentrate on the boys." Yes, research has shown that
teachers do concentrate on the boys. But the research I saw didn't list
that as the primary reason for the single sex schools. It said it was to
allow concentration in the different ways boys learn versus girls. But
I agree that does eliminate the teacher's favoritism problems in all girl
classes at least in noticing the boys most.
And are any of you out there parents of kids in the single sex schools?
How are they doing? How do you like it?
Respond directly to me. I'll compile the comments--if there are any--and
post to the list. I'll close responses at the end of March 3rd.
