I have seen news reports in the past about single gender schools. Some say that it helps when you are trying to bring a child's grade up. What do you think about this? My personal thought is that I disagree with it. Growing up, my school had both genders all the way from Kindergarten to 12th grade. During that time I managed to make the honor roll twice. I think if kids buckle down, they can improve their grades. Besides, I don't think my middle school & high school years would have been as happy as it was if I didn't have girls around. When you are a teenager, you're supposed to ask girls out on dates or at least try. You take that experience away from kids when you separate them.
