But if every argument can be supported, none can be made without caveats.

Sure, there are physical differences between male and female brains, but who says that affects how children learn?

Our kids are probably smarter than frogs and mice—so how much stock should we put in brain morphology when trying to decide whether our kids should be in single-sex schools?

One of the main purported advantages to single-sex schools is that children feel less pigeonholed into gender roles.

For every study that shows single-sex schools increase the risk of children ascribing to gender stereotypes, there’s a study that shows gender stereotypes plummeting in single-sex schools.

And don’t even get us started on long-term academic outcomes.

In other words, kids are going to be exposed to stereotypes regardless of what school they attend., which exploited a South Korean law that randomly assigns students to either single-sex or coed schools.

Which means the hard work was done for them—all they had to do was track each student’s progress and see how both sets of randomly-assigned students turned out.Some experts suspect that these brain differences may have implications for kids who develop differently but are confined to coed classrooms.“It’s not enough to teach well,” Leonard Sax, author, psychologist, and director of the National Association for Single Sex Public Education, that these differences have any implications in the classroom.They found that those attending single-sex schools performed better on standardized tests, were more likely to attend a four-year college, and less likely to junior college (a negative academic outcome).The effects were strong for both boys and girls, but across most metrics the boys saw the greatest benefits..But Tiergarten, one of Berlin’s most beautiful spots in a general sense, is still plentiful with secret nooks. If you’re looking for a double dose of endorphins, there is the 66 Lakes Trail, an expansive 416km path around Brandenburg about an hour’s train ride from the city.
