Single-Sex Experiment in Idaho

From the article:


"History would tell you that boys are just not good at reading and writing," said Gilbert. "It's not that they, the boys develop later. It's that they develop differently. A six-year-old girl's brain is more similar to a nine-year-old girl's brain, than a six-year-old girl's brain is to a six-year-old boy's brain."

In fact, a 2010 study released by the Center on Education Policy showed that among fourth grade students, girls outperformed the reading achievement of boys in all 50 states.
