Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This book begins where others end--by addressing issues about the legality of single-sex schools and classes and the dilemmas they pose for teachers and administrators. The whole book is very insightful and brilliant." -- Cornelius Riordan, Providence College

For Girls Only examines research and public policy regarding single-sex schooling, especially girls-only classes in public, coeducational schools. Since the passage of Title IX in 1972, which calls for equal access and participation regardless of gender, educators have attempted to address gender equity issues in schools. Current research on the progress of female students in U.S. public schools suggests that efforts have not sufficiently addressed concerns such as academic under-achievement in the areas of math and science, lower self-esteem from the advent of early adolescence, and vulnerability to sexual harassment. Despite Title IX, some educators have turned to the creation of single-sex classes and programs for female students in order to better address these critical issues. This book examines the longitudinal results of one study, reviews other research, and considers policy implications in conflict with Title IX.

Janice L. Streitmatter is Associate Professor of Educational Psychology and Associate Dean of the College of Education at the University of Arizona, Tucson. She is the author of Toward Gender Equity in the Classroom: Everyday Teachers' Beliefs and Practices, also published by SUNY Press.
