ABSTRACT
This article details strengths of single-sex classes. It goes a step beyond establishing that single-sex programs in secondary schools can be constitutional to recommending steps local governments and districts should take to comply with mandates established by the Supreme Court in Mississippi, "University for Women v. Hogan" and "United States v. Virginia." The article also describes the legislative and regulatory position of single-sex education. It states that while single-sex classes are currently illegal, proposed regulations currently under consideration or other legislative or regulatory changes will likely allow more flexibility for implementing single-sex education in coming years. The article examines constitutional limits on the ability of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Department of Education to institute policies regarding single-sex education.
