Kindergarten gender groups play to strengths in Pennsylvania elementary school
from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
As adults, some experts theorize, men and women behave so differently they could come from different planets. So it should come as no surprise then, some experts believe boys and girls learn best when they learn differently, too. It was in response to this idea that a team of teachers in Shaler Area School District in Pennsylvania created single-sex learning times in the second half of the 2009-10 school year. It all began when Martin Martynuska, principal of Marzolf Primary School, attended a speech given by Leonard Sax, a psychologist and medical doctor who has written several books on gender differences.
