MPS pushing one-sex schools

I have no idea of what the benefits or the drawbacks would be for creating one sex schools.

Perhaps someone cares to comment?

MPS pushing one-sex schools

An all-boys schools and an all-girls school could open as part of the Milwaukee Public Schools system by September.

In documents made available in advance of a School Board committee meeting Tuesday, MPS administrators said, "MPS strongly believes that parents should be given the opportunity to choose single-sex schools for their children if they believe that these schools will help their children."

Specific schools are not spelled out in the resolution to be considered Tuesday - in fact, it doesn't pinpoint whether the focus should be on high schools, middle schools or even elementary grades.
