Because freedom can't protect itself
Single-sex education, although it doesn't directly increase it, increases the justification for sex stereotypes. With too much emphasis on gender, two polarized views of girls and boys are presented to themselves. Single-sex education should not be a mode of education in public or private schools.
A group of parents in Elmira, NY are trying to start a public school tax funded boys only grades K-8 charter school for approximately 60 boys within the Elmira City School District. Their reasoning: boys have not had enough attention paid to them and how they learn differently and need more help with the STEM subjects. Really. More corporate takeover of our once exemplary public school system? Something for ACLU to look into?
