Single Gender Classes

It seems as if single gender classes are making a comeback.

For many years single gender classes were the trademark of many private academies and special schools, but largely ignored by public schools.

Now, in the effort to leave no stone unturned to improve education, some schools are exploring the all male and all female classrooms again.

One of the more convincing arguments is that children "grow up so fast" today that there is no sense in rushing it.

Seperate, but equal?

Isn't this part of what the Civil Rights movement addressed?

It's bad enough we segregate and seperate advanced and gifted students from others, special ed. students are often seperated, but now this? What's next?
