ABSTRACT
The article discusses sex differences in education, how boys and girls learn differently, and what Wamsley Elementary School in Rifle, Colorado has done to help both genders to excel academically. The socioeconomic status of the students at Wamsley is discussed as is the school's failure to meet adequate yearly progress (AYP), prompting it to consider raising gender equality because girls outperformed boys academically. The school district started to single-sex middle school academies which have been successful. Strategies for effectively teaching boys and girls are provided.
