Rethinking Single-sex teaching: Gender, school subjects and learning

Gabrielle Ivinson, Patricia Murphy

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    The retreat to single-sex classes in co-educational comprehensive schools in the UK reflects a long history where educational policy and practice has made explicit the belief that boys and girls are different in how they learn and what they should learn. However, there is also a common assumption that there is equality in what is made available to learn and, if there is not, then single-sex organisation achieves this.
