Silly thing about that is that I can assure you that for the most part, males never really understand females. They dont think the same way.

You're right. They do, and LEGO did it right, IMO. LEGO was under fire for it too.

LEGO went and did research to find out why little boys played with their products and little girls didn't as much. And as you know, LEGO is a great construction and engineering toy for early STEM skills building. So certain feminists were very keenly interested in getting little girls all on board with LEGO.

What LEGO discovered was that girls were perfectly happy to build ... so long as they could play with the end products of their efforts whereas boys mainly just wanted to build. So for the girls, the building was the means to an end while for the boys it was more then end in and of itself. So LEGO designed girls kits that were more like assemble and play oriented with more accessories and stuff and designed along play themes girls wanted.

It worked and the lines are pretty successful.

Unfortunately, the certain feminists are mad because even though the girls are building, rebuilding and redesigning and playing -- all the STEM skill play LEGOs are great for -- they're playing with girly themed sets in girly colors.

Short answer is no.
It's becoming clear that communication between genders is already a problem. Wide scale separation of children will result in teens with 0 experience in social situations with the opposite gender.

Being around the opposite gender did not ever complicate my learning. Teachers and schools are for teaching, not socializing. If there's a problem with learning - our educational system is more to blame than anything.

In my experience as a female, the boys were the least of my problems. I encountered far more antagonism from other girls which probably affected me even more in my studies.

Yes. Let's create more weak females that will later get abused, raped and sue everyone for free money /sarcasm

No if anything send them to mandatory workout and end this unequal bull#.

I'm with the NO voters on this one
The value of schooling goes beyond the classroom and 'functioning in society' is not exactly on the standard curriculum, being a self-taught skill that requires some sort of balance in the sample population the student gets to work with. Having a single gender school means the students will need to make major re-adjustment at a later age.

I agree that males will never fully understand females, but the more interface opportunities/interaction, the better chance of working together successfully in the future. The real world (post education institutions) does not care if you're male, female, etc. They care about your degree, work experience, and making money, so you've gotta work with all types of people and communicate effectively to do so.

Star and flag for you for teaching me something new on ATS. Thank you and much appreciated.

I think the opposite actually. I went to co-ed grade school (K-8) and then an all boys high school and I am glad I did it that way.

I blame lego for that, they didn't go far enough. Imagine if their girl lego set was composed of the following pieces.


The problem would have been fixed. those certain feminist would have all died of of uncontrolled mass triggering.

Maybe the people who come up with these ideas don't want them to re-adjust later. It seems like to me that you don't start kids out with this kind of backwards nonsense unless you want it to carry over into adulthood. Maybe they want gender segregation society-wide. It would certainly fit well into the pattern we have seen from radical feminists who truly never met a man they didn't hate.

As for me, school is a place where children just don't get knowledge in mathematics and history, but learn to be social. Understand how to communicate with girls and boys. A different approach is needed to all children, not a group of boys or girls.

Their girly lines backfired with my kids big time, lmao. They won't even look at them, and have explicitly instructed me & hubby to never buy them because they won't play with them. "We'll build what WE want to play with, not what they think girls want." Suck on that one, LEGO.

The younger kid built a table for craps and chuckles yesterday. It took her a while, and she "hosted" her sister for tea at it Asian style (sitting on the floor) but the fact is she literally engineered herself a damned table. A TABLE. A load-bearing table made from LEGO bricks.

That's the kind of play they should be happy to encourage, not freakin' Polly Pocket-wannabe LEGOs.

To answer JAG's question, both yes and no. It should at least be an option for public school districts to have some gender segregated ones available in a sufficient quantity. They DO exist already, but I think there's less than a thousand nationally, and that just isn't many, considering there's almost 100,000 public schools in total in the US.

I've worked in a daycare and I now work at a school, k-12. No, children shouldn't be corralled into same sex schools. Different teaching techniques may be a good solution in specific areas of academia. That being said, I see children self segregate all the time. During breakfast, students set wherever they please, no assigned tables with classmates etc. As a rule, males sit with males and females with females. The Native Americans as well sit in their own groups. Also, age sits with like age. In daycare, I saw the same thing. People tend to choose 'like' people to hang out with overall. I suppose because their is some comfort in doing so.
