NYU Panel Explores Potential and Future of Single Sex Schools, Friday, Feb. 22


The role of single sex schools is controversial. Do single sex schools provide academic advantages or no advantage to students? A breakfast session featuring a presentation by Cornelius Riordan, professor of sociology, Providence College, and a response by Emily J. Martin, American Civil Liberties Union Women’s Rights Project, will address the issue. The second in a series of education policy breakfasts, the panel introduces policymakers, practitioners, and researchers to the complex questions of how gender may affect academic experience and outcomes, and how gender interacts with other factors.

The talk will be held at NYU in Lipton Hall, 108 West Third Street (between Sullivan and MacDougal Sts.) on Fri., Feb. 22 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. [Subways: A, B, C, D, E, F, V (West 4th Street); R, W (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place)]

Reporters interested in attending the event are asked to phone Tim Farrell in the Office of Public Affairs at 212.998.6797 or email at tim.farrell@nyu.edu.

Cornelius Riordan is professor of sociology at Providence College. He has studied the effects of single and mixed sex education at all levels of schooling for the past two decades and is the author of Girls and Boys in School: Together or Separate?
