about

Since the 1990s, there has been a resurgence of interest in single-sex education across the United States, and many public schools have created all-boys and all-girls classes for students in grades K through 12. The Separation Solution? provides an in-depth analysis of controversies sparked by recent efforts to separate boys and girls at school. Reviewing evidence from research studies, court cases, and hundreds of news media reports on local single-sex initiatives, Juliet Williams offers fresh insight into popular conceptions of the nature and significance of gender differences in education and beyond.
Juliet Williams is Professor of Gender Studies and Associate Dean of Social Sciences at UCLA. She is also the author of Liberalism and the Limits of Power and contributing coeditor of Public Affairs: Politics in the Age of Sex Scandals.

"This book greatly contributes to conversations about single-sex schooling by illuminating how racism and sexism have undergirded arguments for public single-sex schooling."
