ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the argument whether there should be single-sex public schools and classes in school districts in the U.S. The analysis of data on graduation rates and academic achievement shows that the big differences are due to poverty. The graduate rate of girls is higher than boys, but racial differences and economic differences have dwarfed it. At-risk students are mainly poor and underfinanced. They are in high-density urban schools where there are not well-trained teachers.
