ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of a study on why parents enroll their daughters in all-girls school, conducted by researchers at the University of Kansas and Arizona State University. It notes that the main reason why parents choose to place their children in these schools is a perceived gender difference in how children learn. It also shows in the results that those interviewed did not believe that boys get preferential treatment in co-educational schools.
