Coed vs. Single Sex Schools - Our Kids
The results of the literature review were mixed, though the findings suggested some support for the premise that single-sex schooling can be helpful, especially for certain outcomes related to academic achievement and more positive academic aspirations. The literature review did not, however, include any public single-sex schools in the United States; thus the findings should not be generalized to this population. In addition, the studies had some analytical weaknesses that may have inflated the statistical significance of their findings. Overall, there were more socio-emotional outcomes favoring single-sex schools than academic outcomes favoring single-sex schools. In addition, more socio-emotional outcomes favored girls in single-sex schools (70 percent of 30 outcomes) than boys in single-sex schools (40 percent of 25 outcomes). It should be noted that the studies included in the literature review all involved matched comparison designs and none were random assignment experiments, the "gold standard" of evidence for assessing the impact of an educational intervention.
Research Paper Single Sex Vs. Coed Schools - by Bearcub
Survey and observation data provided information on the characteristics of public single-sex schooling in the United States. The study team distributed surveys in February 2005 to principals and teachers in 19 of the 20 single-sex schools in operation in fall 2003. The recipients included four elementary schools, five middle schools, four combined middle and high schools, and six high schools. In 17 of these schools, the students were predominantly nonwhite, and in 18 of the 19 schools most students were eligible for free or reduced price meals. Only 6 of the schools were in operation prior to 2000 (see Exhibit ES2).
Many people think that single gender schools can provide more opportunities and create more convenient environment than co-educational schools. In my opinion, while I believe that single sex education has some advantages over mixed education,I also think that mixed education has significant advantages as well.

All but one of the principals returned the principal survey (95 percent), and 88 percent of the teachers returned the teacher survey for a total sample size of 18 principals and 478 teachers. To draw comparisons between single-sex and coed schools, the study team analyzed Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) data from 1999–2000 and 2003–04 from 150 demographically similar coed schools (the sample included 146 principals and 723 teachers). The study team used a propensity score analysis to derive a subsample of the nationally representative SASS sample that best matched the single-sex schools on several demographic characteristics.

Overall, single-sex and coed school principal and teacher characteristics were similar across the two groups in terms of education. However, teachers in single-sex schools were less likely to be African-American and had fewer years of teaching experience than teachers in the coed schools. Teachers in single-sex schools were also less likely to have standard certification and more likely to have probationary, temporary, or emergency certification. (Note that this information was collected prior to the NCLB deadline for meeting Highly Qualified Teacher requirements). Student characteristics were also similar across the two samples, although fewer students in single-sex schools were eligible for free or reduced price meals. The majority of students in both single-sex and coed schools were African-American.
