According to the National Association for Single Sex Public Education, an estimated 500 public schools across the country offer some all-boy and all-girl classrooms. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has objected in some states to this concept, claiming many schools offer the classes in a way that conflicts with the U.S. Constitution and Title IX, a federal law banning sex discrimination in education.

For many, many years there have been arguments pro and con on the benefits of separating boys and girls in classrooms. Private schools do it all the time, and, as we all know, there are many private schools for just one sex.
