ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Head of Education at Cambridge University, Mike Younger, notes that schools are increasingly separating boys and girls. He says separating classes can help boys participate in classes without showing off, and that their work improves when girls are not present. He notes that single-sex education can bring its own problems, including an intimidating atmosphere and a homophobic environment.
