Danish schools teach boys and girls separately
Several schools in Denmark are running pilot projects where boys and girls are taught in separate classes, not only in PE, woodwork, and cooking, but also in Danish, math, and natural science, reported the Danish paper Berlingske Tidende. Research indicates that this is successful partly because girls get time to do in-dept study, while boys get instruction with more breaks and activity.
On the junior high level it is particularly in the natural science classes that boys and girls are taught separately. Teachers hope that this is going to contribute to break down the traditional gender role patterns in these subjects, stated the paper.
Results from Britain indicate that more girls from British girl schools than from co-ed schools choose to study math and engineering.
