Check out the American Council on CoEducational Schooling, where you’ll find the latest arguments on why you should keep your child in a co-ed school setting. The director of communications is Lise Eliot, author of Pink Brain, Blue Brain, someone who frequently clashes with Leonard Sax from the National Association for Single Sex Public Education.
I don’t have a dog in this fight. I’ve seen single-sex schools that work well for boys, and I’ve seen traditional co-ed schools that work well for boys. To me, what’s important is how you teach, what you’re teaching and your attitude about whether it’s okay to let boys slide in the early years, assuming they will catch up.
