In the public arena Single sex charter schools

Single sex charter schools for high school kids ;what do you think?


November 31 CBS


According to Legislators in Milwalkee, Wisconsin where  pioneers  have set up a new single sex charter high school for girls, the girls are noting as a group that their overall grade and comprehension scores have skyrocketed due to the absense of dating and dressing up pressure that they felt before.Note that not all girls or boys have an issue with this, but ti seems to work for those who do. What do you think?

Actually Girls do better in all girls school! That is why they fight so hard to prevent them going co-ed.

I went to all girls schools and I think that is important for grade school and junior high school aged girls, but by the time we got to high school we all wanted to interact with guys.  Also by the time we were that age, we were already independent and had our learning habits set.  So I don't think it is the best for high school aged kids, but it works great with the younger crowd.
