Single Sex Schooling No Better

London, UK -- Children given a single sex education perform no better in exams than those who attend mixed schools, says a study. The research questions the commonly held belief that students are more likely to excel if removed from the distractions of the opposite sex. Girls have been thought to gain from being separated.

Professor Alan Smithers, who has examined such studies for more than 50 years said: "There are no overriding advantages for single sex schools on educational grounds."
