It is good to have this balanced approach to considering the value of single-sex classrooms as the option gains popular awareness and possible acceptance as a panacea for problems we now face in our schools. I found the presentation of theory and research to be fair and reasoned. I think the content is well presented for easy understanding and application, both for those entering or enlarging the alternative structure of classroom or school and those just now beginning consideration of the option. The substantial involvement of practicing professionals from the Gurian Institute helped me approach the subject with confidence and knowledge that suggestions were reality-based and results-oriented.
