I hate our public school system I don't think our children learn anything. Two things I would propose is eliminating co-ed schools until middle school or highschool. I would also propose uniforms. I think being able to wear pretty much what ever you want is distracting. I also feel that boys and girls learn differently and they would get more in an all girl or all boy school. What do you think?Answer Question

I would think separating them in Middle and H/S would help. I remember a big focus during that time was the boys. What we look like and for some how to impress so and so. It just seems as if so many focus on the wrong things and training them to be able to focus on studying. My DH benefited from boarding school with boys only and even in college he got straight A's and put school first. I think a good alternative could be maybe having both sexes go to the same school but in seperate classes.

Where both have been tried the grades go way up and so does attendance. Both have been used in the past and are currently being used with great results. School is NOT real life--how often after graduation do you spend your days with the same age group and move from level to level with the same people---so the idea that separating the genders isn't real life does not hold water:-) Unfortunately, there are those idiot people fighting both uniforms and single gender schools--in the name of "equality" and totally ignoring the actual results.
