South Carolina Student Survey on Single-Gender Education
Three-fourths of South Carolina students in grades 2 through 9 felt positive about their experiences in single-gender classrooms, says a survey from the South Carolina Department of Education.
Students cited heightened self-confidence and classroom participation as reasons for favoring single-gender classrooms. The online survey of 1,700 students in single-gender classrooms across the state was conducted in November and December 2007.
