Bush Administration Eases Limits on Same-Sex Schools

FOX News: "WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is giving public schools wider latitude to teach boys and girls separately in what is considered the biggest change to coed classrooms in more than three decades.

After a two-year wait, the Education Department issued final rules Tuesday detailing how it will enforce the Title IX landmark anti-discrimination law. Under the change taking effect Nov. 24, local school leaders will have discretion to create same-sex classes for subjects such as math, a grade level or even an entire school.

'Some students may learn better in single-sex education environments,' said Education Secretary Margaret Spellings. 'These final regulations permit communities to establish single-sex schools and classes as another means of meeting the needs of students.'

'Every child should receive a high quality education in America and every school and district deserves the tools to provide it,' she said."
