This week I'm posting about single sex schools. When I google searched "single sex schools" the big question seemed to be which was better, coeducational or single sex schools? After alittle research I found out that there have been numerous studies done to answer that question. This Website argues that students in single sexs schools learn better that students in coeductional schools. however, the website suggests "It's not sufficient just to put girls in one classroom and boys in another. In order to improve academic performance and broaden educational horizons, you'll need to understand the subtleties of gender differences in learning."
In this video Dr.Leonard Sax also makes the arguement that single sex schools are better.
I don't know how I feel about this idea. I can see how "theoretically" it might makes sense that boys and girls would learn differently, but most of the reseach suggest (like the woman says) there isn't much difference. Also I think the idea's that Dr. Leonard has seem alittle "out there", like the fact that he believes that boys learn better standing up and at aproximately 20 degrees celisus. I don't know...at first I though that it was a joke...it seems kinda weird...
