The Washington Post reporter Lori Aratani covers the findings of The Task Force on the Education of Maryland's African-American Males. Among other things the task force proposes educating some African-American males in single sex classes. The task force suggests that this proposal is controversial. Why? Because some might argue that single sex classes might further segregate these young men. On the other hand it has been adequately demonstrated that many young men do much better in a single sex school where the social pressures take a back seat to personal growth and achievement.
I think that single sex education is a concept worth considering. What do you think?
