Sex Differences and the School.
Stewart, William J.
Sex Differences in the School discusses why teaching and learning must often be sex-differentiated. Both biological and cultural factors contribute to sex differences, and these differences help to characterize the preferences of girls and boys for different kinds of learning. Also, conclusive research findings document that girls and boys experience more success and satisfaction with learning tasks which are selected with appropriate reference to sex differences. In fact, some of the underachievement and learning inefficiency, which is evident in the school, can be attributed to the failure to take sex differences into consideration. Therefore, it is essential that the school make provision, whenever it is necessary, for the differences between girls and boys. (Author)
