ABSTRACT
What is believed to be the first comprehensive study of public single-sex schools in the United States is under way, with a mission from the Department of Education to determine whether all-boys or all-girls education can help improve learning. The department has said it is not advocating single-sex education for students, but says it is an additional option for school districts and parents. In past years, Title IX and subsequent court rulings have all but banned most single-gender education in public schools, except in physical and sex education classes.
