Dennis Walcott wants to add more single-sex options for parents.

And the New York Civil Liberties Union objects:

There are issues of policy here that are of serious concern," said NYCLU Director Donna Lieberman, who pointed to a lack of data that the schooling model works. "In a school system that is supposed to be data-driven and that purportedly values diversity, it's terribly disappointing to hear about plans for proliferating gender-segregated models," she added. "It sends a terrible message to young people that our city doesn't think that they can learn with their peers of the opposite sex."
