SHARE

“Studies show that women’s classroom engagement goes up when women are in a single-sex classroom. They also show better test scores, lower dropout rates, better knowledge retention, better critical thinking skills application, more lateral thinking, better ability to engage in meta-cognition, and better ability to think overall.

Students have better mental well-being during and after single-sex classroom education, have more self-confidence, and feel they know the material better. They hesitate less on the job, and they are better equipped to penetrate the obscure social cues associated with an industry. Self-confidence, and these mental health gains are significant.”
