8. No boys allowed Since 2002, more and more mixed public schools in the US have been offering pupils the chance to learn in single-sex classrooms.

Teacher talks: Girls Lori Krohn teaches maths and science at New Washington Middle-High School. She says: “We started single-sex classes three years ago. One day, we went on a trip with the girls in one bus and the boys in another. We couldn’t believe how well behaved all the kids were. So we tried the same thing in the classrooms. Since then, our boys and girls have behaved a lot better. They focus more on their lessons and less on who else is in the room. When boys and girls are together, the boys often depend on the girls to help them with their work. When we do group work in girls’ classes, I call the groups ‘families’ – because girls enjoy working together. In boys’ classes, I call the groups ‘teams’ – because boys enjoy competing with each other. Girls like to sit down, read and learn, but boys like to be active and competitive.”

9. Alyssa Brewer, 14, is a pupil at New Washington Middle-High School, in the US state of Indiana. New Washington offers single-sex classes in some subjects to pupils in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. When Alyssa took this opportunity, she got better marks. “I have a hearing problem, and it was hard to hear the teacher in mixed classes. Boys make noise for no reason. It’s annoying,” she says. “All-girls classes are a good idea. At age 11, girls are more mature than boys. They take their work seriously and want to learn. Boys just play around and have fun. But girls want to be successful.

2. Which statements do you agree with? Which do you disagree with? Put a tick (P) in the ‘I agree’ column if you think a statement is true. Then compare and talk about your answers in small groups.


Read what the pupils say and then write what you think.

Would you go to a single-sex school?

Yes, I would. I wouldn’t have to worry about how I look and dress. I could focus on school more and hang out more with girls.

(Isaura, 14)

No, I wouldn’t. At an all-girls school, you would get in more fights because there are no boys to separate you. Girls fight more than boys do. (Jasmine, 14)

No, I wouldn’t go to an all-boys school. Girls are a distraction that needs to be there. (Rainer, 16)

No, I wouldn’t. I’m friends with a lot of girls. If you want a girlfriend, it’s harder to be with her if you’re at a different school. (John, 16)
