Gender-divided classes are gaining in popularity as teachers and school administrators look for ways to reduce distractions among students. Stephens County Middle School plans to shift to gender-divided classes on core subjects for 7th graders.

Meanwhile, Greene County is backing off of plans to convert their entire school district into gender-divided classes. Although school administrators are still supportive of the approach, parents reacted heatedly at board meetings and other public forums saying that a large change such as that should have been vetted to them for their input before ruling in favor of the measure. Parents suggest testing with a classroom or grade rather than convert all.

Union County Schools are purportedly considering gender-divided classes for certain middle school grades along the lines of what Stephens County is trying.

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT IDEA

They have just started a public school for girls in Atlanta, which is an excellent idea.

Everything I say is fully substantiated by my own opinion.Go to Top of Page
