ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Single Sex Public Education (SSPE) movement. SSPE is based on the hypothesis that differences in the ways male and female brains develop require classrooms where boys and girls are not only separated by gender but are taught using very different methods. Dr. Leonard Sax, National Associate for Single Sex Public Education executive director, illustrates the different ways teachers should treat their students in gender-segregated classes in an essay published in the Spring 2006 edition of Educational Horizons.
