The Influence of Leonard Sax

Considering the number of single-sex programs starting up, it's possible to argue that Leonard Sax and his National Association for Single Sex Public Education rivals Arne Duncan for the person having the most impact on classrooms. Sax steers schools toward single-sex programs, Duncan toward better teacher evaluation and accountability.

Here's a taste of Sax's latest work in Syracuse.

As a solution, I'm not as focused on single-sex as Sax is. I've seen other reform models work equally well. But I like Sax's directness. Just splitting students by sex and making a few instructional changes won't produce the results you're hoping for, he warns. He's realistic.
