ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of single-sex education in U.S. It says single-sex education gathered renewed interest in 1990's until 2003 from advocacy groups, researchers, and policy makers. The new regulation which has been issued by the U.S. department of Education on October 25, 2006 has fueled this renewed interest. The National Coalition for Women and Girls in education expressed opposition to single-sex education and wrote that it does not guarantee improved schools. A research concerning the effectiveness of single-sex education is provided. It concludes that the benefits of single-sex schooling remains unclear.
