This is what passes for “research” in the large-scale experiment we’re running in single-sex public education. It’s great that the school leaders “feel” good about the experiment and the classes “may” play a factor in school improvement, but shouldn’t the feds be launching some high quality research into what works, and doesn’t work, with single-sex education? Education is a field with an unhappy history of embracing fads. Seems like the DOE should have a strong incentive to get involved here.
