It's requires a bit of acceptance that sometimes nurture in our society can put massive limitations on a child's potential, through little fault of his or her parents. Using data from the National Pupil database, which collects information from every school and on every child, the report shows that there are schools that buck the trend. I have friends who had wonderful experiences in single-sex schools growing up or in college. If there is no convincing evidence that the specific sex segregation is better than comparable coeducation, it should be ended and all efforts should be used to create high quality gender equitable coeducation.

Progress is being made by single sex schools, independents and a handful of beacon co-eds. The psychologists' "prescription": As many diverse contacts to individuals belonging to different social groups as possible. In summary, FMF hopes that education and equity experts including the required Title IX Coordinators will identify public schools in their areas that are using deliberate sex segregation. Films are the largest disseminators of stereotyped images.

I learned about the existence of gender stereotypes and how to bust them and be myself in a co-educational environment that confronted me with them every day. For example, a company employed an iron worker whose supervisor harassed him with derogatory insults, locker room talk, and simulated sex acts because the iron worker did not act in the way the supervisor believed a man should act. It is very difficult to provide even "substantial" equality in sex segregated schools, classes, or activities, whether we are talking about facilities, quality of instruction, levels of expectations, treatment of students, or preference for a particular teacher. A stereotype is a picture in the head not an accurate mirror of the real world. This Article first describes the ways in which teaching sex stereotypes may affect children, highlighting the need for further empirical research in this area. Good educational practices can and do meet the needs of both girls and boys in a coeducational setting by addressing individual needs and by consciously striving for gender equity in curriculum and instruction.
