An article in the New York Times highlights the increasing popularity of single-sex public education.
Several studies and books written on the subject have suggested that boys and girls learn differently and benefit from different learning environments. (One somewhat trivial difference, for example, is that boys learn better in cooler rooms with white lights while girls do better when it's warmer and the light is soft yellow.) And while single-sex private schools have long been the norm, some public schools are now creating single sex classrooms as well.
