Designing and Implementing Single-Sex Programs and Schools
Across the U.S. about 500 public schools currently offer single-gender classes or programmes. Hundreds more schools are contemplating separate classes for boys and girls in the wake of the 2006 legislation that allows such programmes to satisfy Title IX requirements.
Spearheading the national trend in this direction with over 300 single-gender programmes is South Carolina, where David W. Chadwell was appointed the first state coordinator for single-gender initiatives. In this book, Chadwell lays out for administrators the step-by-step process of implementing single-sex programmes and schools in three stages: designing, initiating, and sustaining.
A Gendered Choice is a practical, how-to book based upon unique, first-hand experience that interested administrators will want to examine as they contemplate or begin to introduce single-gender programmes in their schools.
