Today''s public schools are in peril. High drop-out rates among our youth, teen pregnancy at an all-time high and parental apathy pervade mainstream American schools. Many schools and school districts are beginning to offer alternative means of educating students. An option which has gained momentum over the years is that of a single-gender setting. Not hailed as a panacea, however many studies are suggesting that the single-gender setting can have a positive effect on school variables. This book goes in depth into how one school district in San Antonio, TX is experimenting with such a setting and are having great success. Dr. Diop''s study suggests that although there is much work to be done in educating America''s youth, to offer alternatives in the way of educating our children can only yield positive results.
