Single-sex schools are good for education

TEFL UK online training

Single-sex schools are schools that only admit those of one specific gender, believing that the educational environment created by a single gender is more helpful to learning. Studies conducted have shown that boys gain more academically from studying in co-education schools, but that girls find segregated schools more productive for achievement.
