Boys vs Girls

I saw this clip on CNN when I was surfing around instead of grading. I thought it was really interesting. What do you think? (Pardon the commercial...blame CNN)

Nice find. I can see both sides. I think many of my female friends would have benefited from the all-girl classroom style of teaching but that would have driven me crazy. I am the science and math girl who really doesn't enjoy lots of collaborative projects. I preferred to do them on my own. But that is just me. It will be neat to see how this progresses. It is nice to have options.

When my own kids were little I looked into the stats on gender specific shcools. At that time, it showed girls do better in all girls schools, but boys do about the same in either.
