Single-sex education is beneficial to females in emotional, intellectual, and societal growth. This paper argues that single-sex classes have positively impacted females and offer a tailored style of learning. It explains that gender bias, gender discrimination, and male distraction is eliminated. Females also benefit academically and through standardized test scores.

From the Paper:

"The Young Women's Leadership Academy graduated its first class in June, 2001. All but one of the seniors was accepted by a four-year college; the one exception was a female who joined the Air Force. Most of those going to college also won full scholarships (Sax). The first valedictorian, Edriana Suarez, fought back tears as she spoke about the odds that the class had to overcome just to remain open. "We are underdogs," she told her graduating class. "There are many who don't expect us to win and don't want us to win. The only thing we can do about these people is that that's exactly what we are doing today," (Sax). Suarez's statement reflects the considerable amount of furor in both public and private single-sex educational spheres. However, evidence and research has outlined the positive affect of same-sex education for females. Single-sex education is beneficial to females in mental, emotional, and societal growth."
