Nationwide Poll Shows Moms Evenly Divided on Co-Ed vs. Single-Sex Classes

MomsLikeMe.com (a national online community of over 80 local sites that connect moms with other moms) conducted a poll of its members relating to their children’s school classes. The poll results show that 51% of moms would prefer to enroll their children in co-ed classes as opposed to 49% of moms who would prefer to enroll their children in same-sex classes if given the choice.

The results of this poll because show just how evenly divided moms are about the issue of co-ed vs. single-sex education for their children. This divisive issue provides interesting insight into moms across the country and their thinking behind what is the best classroom and learning environment for their children.

Liz Here: As the product of an all-girls parochial High School, I can attest to the fact that I truly believe that a single-gender classroom or school definitely has its advantages. Less distractions, the ability to teach any given subject in a way that either girls or boys can best relate to - the advantages are numerous.
