  1. 1. Coed VS. Single-Sex Educationby Alicia Sampson Google Images
  2. 2. The opportunity for single-sex education should be made more accessible in the United States so parents can give their children an environment that increases focus for more effective learning, open exploration of more subjects, to enforce a more positive attitude about education, and increase self-confidence in students.

  3. 3. FACTS: • Single-sex education is on the rise in the U.S. since 2002 • Boys and girls learn, develop, and behave differently • One size does not fit all when it comes to education
  4. 4. Boys VS Girls • Boys have more gray matter in their brain = less sensitivity and more focus • Girls have more white matter in their brain= easier transitions of tasks and more capable of multi- tasking • Each gender processes hormones differently • Even before birth female and male brains are different • Women have verbal centers in both hemispheres of the brain • Men have verbal centers only in the left hemisphere of the brain Picture by Google Images
  5. 5. Pros of Single-sex schools • Easier to focus • Breaks down gender stereotypes • Students more involved in school activities • Less drama and trouble • Fewer absences • Better organization • Higher test scores • Increased confidence • More likely to continue to college and beyond • Fewer diagnosis of ADHD and ESE Google Images
  6. 6. Theories against Single-sex schools • Fear of gender discrimination-This is not discrimination and is not illegal. It is teaching in accordance to gender strengths. • Inability to interact with the opposite sex-Students can be involved outside of the classroom with the opposite sex via social media, community events, shopping, travelling, visiting friends and family, etc. • Other contributing factors to single-sex school successes besides gender separation-Involving new curricula specific to that genders strength. Of course other factors should be considered. • Increased gender stereotyping-False. Students are more involved and gain more confidence in single-sex schools since they can explore more courses without feeling judged. • Lack of research-Research is continuing, data is collected from schools that have already switched, other countries, and other factors like race, socioeconomics, type of school public/private are all variables being considered. • Lack of school funding to implement program and train teachers-This continues to be an issue in an already struggling education budget. In America, increased test scores and attendance increases school district budgets.
  7. 7. In conclusion there are far greater reasons than not to at least give parents the option to decide which environment is best suited for their child. Single-sex schools are not for every student but neither is a coed school. Students are all unique their education should be as well. “One size does not fit all.” -Dr. Leonard Sax Google Images
