When WNYC's Leonard Lopate Show
decided to discuss
(audio) the Summer's gender brouhaha, an interesting thing happened. The guest expected to support gender difference interpretations, Dr. Sax, and the guest expected to discuss structural challenges to women in the sciences, Dr. Bell, agreed on one solution: single-sex education. As the AP noted last summer, single-sex public education
is up. Though some object
on the basis that separate
is never equal, Dr. Sax's organization claims both boys
see definite results. And even if you don't agree with Dr. Sax's reasoning, he says the studies are on his side.
After all, girls schools have given us awesome ladies like Rosa Parks, Sally Ride, and me.
