My middle school is interested in piloting single gender classes. The research presented at the parents' meeting tonight was overwhelmingly in favor of such groupings. We had a displaced teacher from N.O. speak to us about her experiences with such classes and how positive it was - both with discipline and test scores.
The superintendent has given his blessing - if the parents approve it. For now, we're surveying the parents. We had only a small gathering of parents at the meeting tonight. All of them voted in favor. THe surveys go home with the kids tomorrow. I guess we're afraid that most parents will vote their kids' wishes - and most of our students are vehemently opposed.
Any experience with single gender classes?
