Brighton College head says single-sex schools harm girls as 'they can't talk to boys' | Daily Mail Online

     There was a single sex women's college in Columbia, MO when I attended Mizzou.  I think those girls found ways to talk to boys.

      Like any scenario its upbringing that determines whether such a school works. And does the corollary apply ?  Are prep school boys disadvantaged by not knowing how to talk to girls ?

       Learning to talk to the opposite sex is not something always learned in regular schools either.

There is no question that it is good for people to be socialized with the opposite sex during a substantial amount of their formative years. At least if the child will go on to live in a society similar to any from the last 50 years.

It would be a good thing if we changed society instead, from the one we have now, where girls are encouraged to be boys and boys are encouraged to be cowards, but that is not what these kids will be released in to when that final bell rings in the spring of their thirteenth year.

Obviously the Brighton College 'head' has no knowledge of the social media revolution where everyone, (boys and girls) everywhere talk all day and night! Does any of the 'experts' have confidence in the parents of the children? Mom and Pop are the first line of tutoring and enlightenment for the children.

When growing up the girls that like to party the most was from all girl schools and church run schools . They where told everything was bad and couldn't wait to get out of school and go crazy and try them so putting them into a place that keeps them from the real world makes them worse.
