Significance of the Study<br />My research is important because as an educator I want to find the best way to educate my students. <br />This research would be important for our students, faculty and parents. <br />This study will benefit our educational system as a whole, as well as, our students. <br />
Potential Compromises <br />Many parents and schools are worried about the social aspects of a single sex classroom. Some different options are:<br />Single sex classes for only core subjects<br />Co-ed P.E., lunch and other electives<br />Keep co-ed field trips and assemblies<br />
Conclusion<br />Single sex classrooms are becoming more popular today due to:<br />Increased test scores<br />Better behavior <br />Higher self-esteem<br />Better classroom management<br />From my research and discovery I believe that single sex classrooms would engage students and promote success if it were utilized effectively. <br />
