    In any case, I have agreed with other policies he's suggested, like a different approach to drugs.
    It's off-topic, so don't want to derail the schools discussion.

    Neither do I , but I would imagine (as in single sex schools) parental encouragement , personality and suitable cirriculum would be equally or more important

    If my Son or Daughter , drop a grade , fail 1 subject yet come out knowing how to interact and respect the other 50% of the population (whom they will have to live with for the rest of their lives) then they are better "educated" IMO

    BTW, the school system is about far more than academic results.
    First two links in a google search:

    Girls 'get better GCSE results in all-girl schools' - BBC News

    You're so lazy. Obviously a boy!

    Bear in mind that single sex schools in most countries are elite academy type places. I wouldn't necessarily think you're looking at causation, just correlation.

    Statistics can be fairly meaningless without proving that something actually causes something else and isn't either coincidental or due to some other variable - in this case intake selection bias and school culture.

    They are a bizzare anachronism and I've seen plenty of incidences over the years where girls couldn't get access to the same ranges of subjects and sports and so on because of the divide.

    It's improved for things like maths and science but try something like engineering type subjects in a girls school..
