|Description:||When I fi rst learned that a growing number of public schools teaching grades kindergarten through twelfth across the United States were experimenting with single-sex classes to address issues ranging from low self-esteem among adolescent girls to academic underachievement among at-risk boys, I was more than a little surprised. Of course I was aware that some parochial schools, as well as a handful of elite private schools, remained committed to the idea of educating girls and boys separately. Nonetheless, it was hard for me to comprehend how single-sex education could be on the rise in U.S. public schools.|
