ABSTRACT
The article reveals how a movement for single-sex public education is gaining ground in the U.S. based on the paradigm that there are pedagogical differences in teaching men and women based on their biological sex differences. It explains how the movement had gained opponents who sought recourse in legal courts on claim that this type of education is based on outmoded stereotypes of gender. It describes two strategies on how to rebut claims that single-sex education encourages gender stereotypes.
