Unique education offers students a learning environment free from social pressures, stereotypes, and conventions. Thus both genders can more calmly exploit their strengths and relate to the academic spheres in a more uninhibited way, This model of school organization creates a school environment with a markedly more formative and educational tone.
Some of the advantages for girls are
The single-gender environments challenge the gender culture that often surrounds mixed-school subjects, classifying them as “boys” or “girls.” In a single school, girls can experiment with more freedom, traditionally considered “male” disciplines, see what they are capable of, gain self-esteem and academic freedom. Moreover, girls learn and move in an alternative environment that reduces social and media obsession for aesthetics and body worship.
Countries such as the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Germany, Norway, and France have introduced specific experiences and specific education programs as a means to reduce school failure and improve academic achievement among boys.
The European Commission reaffirmed the target of dropping school attendance by less than 10 percent across the EU by 2020. In 2011, dropping out of schooling, a percentage of young people between the ages of 18 and 24 who did not complete compulsory secondary education, stood at 13.5% (11.6% for girls versus 15.3% for boys).
The data published by international organizations show that the sexual component is a determining factor in the numbers of school failure, which is increasing among boys, especially in countries such as Malta (38.9%), Spain (31%), Portugal, 2%), Iceland (22.2%) and Italy (21%).
Singular education, while respecting the maturity rhythms and the learning styles of boys and girls, achieves excellent academic results, contributing to the reduction of school failure.
Singular education proves to be effective for personal freedom in assuming roles considered as belonging to the other sex, it minimizes stereotypes and opens the door to the choice of subjects traditionally considered “girls” or “boys” with less social pressures. Learning in a way that minimizes the unwanted effects of gender stereotypes contributes to the discovery and unfolding of the personality and allows widening the preferences and outlets for both girls and boys.
According to Eurydice, the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission presented in 2009 the study Gender Differences in Educational Outcomes: Measures adopted and current situation in Europe, which stated: “This type of education Gives boys and girls more freedom to choose materials that are not associated with their gender, gives girls more space and contributes to their self-esteem, and encourages the effort of the boys by not having to worry about their image as students.
