Should boys and girls be taught separately?

Alun Jones the first leader of the Girls’ Schools Association has stated recently that girls dominate in the classroom and therefore, boys would be at an advantage if they were taught separately. He argues that clever, articulate girls can be intimidating to boys who are not so capable of expressing themselves.

This is a really interesting debate and one I’m sure will continue to spark discussion. There are clearly advantages and disadvantages attached to both sides of the argument, which require careful consideration. What are your thoughts regarding this issue? Did you go to a same-sex school and would you recommend them or not?
