The article reports that school districts in the U.S. will have a greater opportunity to offer single-sex schooling options, provided there is a firm educational benefit to doing so. The U.S. Department of Education released the Title IX regulations that give more flexibility to districts to create single-sex classes or schools. However, some powerful groups oppose the program, claiming it encourages gender stereotyping and is based on false research.
