ABSTRACT
The article examines the effectiveness of teaching in single-sex classrooms. Early research indicated that girl students benefit from the single-sex setting because they can participate more in class discussions, especially in math and science subjects. Robert Kirschenbaum explained that elements of true education are lost when students are grouped by gender. He added that combining both genders in classrooms will develop respect and appreciation of gender differences.
