Single-sex education: The Connectcut context - Technical Report
Single-sex education: The Connecticut context - Technical Report.
This technical report provides the brief history, legality, and research surrounding the gender gap and single-sex education. Single-sex education refers to educational settings in which make and female students attend classes or schools exclusively with members of their own sex. This educational model has been debated on philosophical and legal grounds. Research on single-sex education is divided, with no definitive argument to compel the justification of their existence or to dismiss their utility as an alternative educational option. Finally, this report discusses the advantages and disadvantages of single-sex education and provides specific gender gap data for the state of Connecticut.
