Bush Admin. pushes sex-segregated education
The Bush administration recently announced it's easing restrictions to encourage more sex-segregated public schools. I'm with most of the major civil liberties groups in saying I'm not happy with this smackdown of Title IX.
(And before everybody goes shouting that, "Hey! But feminists loooove women-only colleges!", let me say that sex-segregated education is a vastly different issue when we're talking about public K-12 schools. )
Sure, some studies have shown that both girls and boys can benefit from being in a sex-segregated learning environment. But the right-wingers who are pushing for more single-sex schools don't have these benefits in mind. This is more of a tool to reinforce traditional gender roles than it is to improve learning.
