AN ar­ti­cle by Mel­bourne Grad­u­ate School of Ed­u­ca­tion re­searcher Anna Dabrowski dis­cussing sin­gle sex schools states that just as stu­dents should not be seg­re­gated by so­cio-eco­nomic sta­tus, race or cul­ture, they should also not be seg­re­gated by gen­der, says Perth Montes­sori deputy prin­ci­pal Ian Michael.

“Re­search has failed time and again to demon­strate that sin­gle sex ed­u­ca­tion pro­duces bet­ter aca­demic and so­cial out­comes,” he said.

“In fact, Montes­sori schools never seg­re­gate stu­dents for any rea­son and ac­tively pro­mote coed ed­u­ca­tion as bet­ter pre­par­ing stu­dents for life be­yond the class­room.”
