By placing a child in a single-sex school, it has been proven that children will have the ability to learn more.
In the article, “Single-sex Education: the pros and cons“, Kristin Stanberry states that not only private schools offer single-sex education. More often, public schools are beginning to offer such programs. She also states that there is an evident difference in how girls and boys learn. There are a list of factors that contribute to their learning differences; room temperature, abilities/disabilities, intelligence, family, socioeconomic status, culture, etc. Although some of these do not contribute to gender, these differences could greatly influence a student’s ability to learn and succeed. “Leonard Sax and others agree that merely placing boys in separate classrooms from girls accomplishes little. But single-sex education enhances student success when teachers use techniques geared the gender of their students” states Stanberry.
Whether someone believes in single-sex education or not, students are almost guaranteed to exceed the basic knowledge they learn in a normal education surrounding. In order for students and parents to see that there is a difference, parents should be able to enroll their students in a part-time class which allows experimenters to determine is there is a large difference in the amount of knowledge gained. An experiment like this would allow parents to realize that in order for their children to succeed at a high educational level, they may have to approach schooling in a different way.
