Lee, Valerie E.; Bryk, Anthony S.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v78 n5 p381-95 Oct 1986
This study compares the effects of single-sex and coeducational secondary schooling. Results indicate that single-sex schools deliver specific advantages to their students, especially female students. Single-sex schools may facilitate adolescent academic development by providing an environment where social and academic concerns are separated. (Author/JAZ)
