Should the Sexes Be Separated for Secondary Education--Comparisons of Single-Sex and Co-Educational Schools?
Robinson, Pamela; Smithers, Alan
Research Papers in Education: Policy and Practice, v14 n1 p23-49 Mar 1999
English researchers compared the academic and social benefits of single sex and coeducational schools, examining test scores and interviewing 100 college students (balanced for sex and type of school) about their experiences and their ease of adjustment to higher education. Results indicated that segregating the sexes did not increase effectiveness, though the mood appears to be swinging toward coeducation. (SM)
