Gender-Specific Reading Classes Coming to One Alabama County

From the Montgomery Advertiser:
Lynn Ritvo, principal of Wetumpka Intermediate, and Stephen McKenzie, principal of Wetumpka Junior High, decided on the single-sex classroom approach after doing research and reading "Boys and Girls Learn Differently! A Guide for Parents and Teachers" by Michael Gurian, Patricia Henley and Terry Trueman.

It's interesting that some of Principal Ritvo's research was done at Harvard University's Principal's Center, when it was only a little while ago that Harvard President Larry Summers was castigated by the faculty for saying that boys are different from girls.
