More Single Sex Experiments

This time in Columbus, Ohio.

From the article:

Columbus City Preparatory School for Boys principal Michael Owens said that teachers will present information in way that keeps young boys engaged in learning.

"We're looking at best practices for educating boys and particularly looking at literacy," Owens said.

Everyone's saying the right things ... I just wish I had a better gut instinct about how all these experiments will turn out. I still can't understand how the U.S. Department of Education can just sit on the sidelines watching all this unfold without stepping in to offer guidance.
