Let’s Talk About Sex Gender

The May 7th Education Week has a detailed article (Single-Sex Schooling Gets New Showcase) on the growing movement in South Carolina to offer more single-sex education options. The article comes with a map that lists the number of single-sex public school offerings state by state, and I was surprised to see that Washington had five listed. Doing a little poking around I came across this website from the National Association for Single Sex Public Education, which talks about programs in Camas, Vancouver, Olympia, and Seattle. I’ll be darned.

What do you think about single-sex classrooms? If you were in school, would you feel positive about the experience? Would you put your own children in single-sex environments if they were available?
