Single-sex Scrutiny

In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling that VMI's all-male policy was unconstitutional, this opinion article responds to the opening of an all-female junior high school in East Harlem. The writer responds to opinions that the opening of an all-female school discriminates against boys, by acknowledging that preferential treatment towards boys may intimidate girls in school, but that separating the sexes is not the solution. Instead, she argues that teachers and administrators must make an effort to equalize the classroom.
