Participants included advocates and school directors and staff from the United States, the United Kingdom, Israel, Qatar, and Poland. Her presentation, “Making the Case for Single-Sex Schooling” responded to the legal and policy claims made by civil liberties groups and others against publicly supported single-sex schools, critiqued the research on which those claims are based, and detailed randomly controlled empirical studies from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and South Korea suggesting that these schools can produce positive outcomes.
