What the court’s decision could mean for the future is that single-sex universities could start being more open minded and accept students to enroll for credit without considering the sex of the person applying for an education. This case along with similar cases could help to completely end single-sex institutions in general, not only on universities. Ending single-sex schools could apparently help improve the people’s education. It is said
In “Boys Here, Girls There: Sure, If Equality’s the Goal”, Karen Stabiner writes an essay about same sex schools. In the first paragraph Stabiner opens the essay by saying, “Many parents may be wondering what the fuss was this past week, when the Bush administration endorsed single-sex public schools and classes.” (325) Stabiner is simply saying that many parents were probably surprised that the bush administration was for same sex schools. Stabiner then gives us her view on the topic by saying, “What I’ve learned is this: Single sex education matters, and it matters most to the students who historically have been denied access to it.” (326) Stabiner gives several examples and statistics in her essay to try and support her stand for same sex
In the article “With No Boys to Ogle, We Had Time to Learn” by Christine Flowers that was published in Newsweek on October 24, 2005, Flowers discusses the benefits of single-gender schools. Flowers attended an all girls school during her secondary education and continued her single-sex education in college.

On a College Navigator website, the authors of “Rogers State University” asserts that RSU provides a variety of great mixes of types of things that both male and female can do and the expansion of the school. As a publisher of the site, it states that Rogers State University is a “public four year college, which accepts men and women to attend. RSU is located in Claremore, Oklahoma about 160 acres wide, with 8 facilities in all”. As a new generation many students are looking for schools that accept them for certain things. For example, high school students look for Co-ed schools, a campus that has a normal good size, and a school that provides many facilities to be in and a school that is somewhat near home.
Patrick Holt English 802 Joshua Lukin Temple University 1/25/16 The debate about how to help young boys perform better in school is anything but simple. There are many different views and opinions on the matter. Some believe that it is very feminine environment that boys are introduced to in the classroom and making the classroom more appealing to boys is the best solution. This view is championed by the article How Boys Learn, written by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens.
A child’s education is affected by various elements such as gender, race, environment, economic factors, privilege, and more. These elements shape the outcome of a student’s educational experience and learning. They also determine what and how students will learn. In order to create an appropriate learning environment, there should be a sense of community. In other words, the common goal should be helping students succeed and reach their maximum potential.
Dress code sexism regards the hope and change for justice. If the school is able to recognize that dress code sexism does exist, they should not think of uniforms as the number one solution. Uniforms will solve dress code sexism for a limited time. The limit is when students graduate from high school and even when students are outside of school. School uniforms are very modest.
The dress code policy for every school is different. From personal experience, I feel that females are more targeted at my school over boys. I have friends at different schools who can wear almost whatever they want and not be in violation of a school’s dress code. For example, one day a friend of mine, who attends Southern Boone High School, wore volleyball spandex and a very slim spaghetti strap tank top. If dress codes are going to be implemented, they need to be in affect fairly.
Men and women don't understand what each one is going through in society. Girls are expected to be clean and pretty; while boys are messy and rude. But when it comes to school, Parents excepted boy to do well in school, but not the girls.

Don’t you think that’s wrong? Cause i do, i should be able to walk down the hallway with not worrying about male teachers and students staring at me or touching me. When girls are told to cover up because they don’t want boys to see them as a target their teaching girls to be afraid of boys.

In schools, dress codes cause sexism in schools, they make schools place this code over everything else, the aftermath of dress codes are negative, and they also cause a lack of creative freedom. Sexism in schools is so prominent due to dress codes due to the unfairness between male and female dress codes. It is often thought that what a female student is wearing can be more distracting than what a male student wears. The reason for this belief is that ever since childhood society teaches kids that it is the woman 's fault if a male is distracted in any way by her.
The administration and teachers think the dress code is just fine even if it means that the student will have to miss their classes. The dress code is unfair and females are told that they are distractions for boys and the class. Females are told that they will be a distraction to boys if they wear leggings or if their shoulders can be seen, but has anyone ever heard a boy say “Man those are some nice shoulders!” I never have. Women cannot express themselves as easy because of the restrictions they have on the clothing they can wear.
Single-Gender Schools Should not be Tolerated in this Day and Age. Single gender schools affects are gender stereotyping, inability to work with the opposite gender, and inhabits opportunities for the different genders to learn from each other (Elliot, 2016). Although single-gender schools have benefits it might not be from differing the genders (Ancheta , 2018). Research also shows no evidence that single gender schools boost in achievement.

Feminist pedagogy is an educational philosophy that seeks to create “equal access, participation, and engagement” for all students through the active opposition of racism, sexism, homophobia, and social status prejudice as barriers to classroom equality and success (p.) It seeks to dismantle the power hierarchies present in society that reinforcement these prejudices and strives to empower students to become agents of social change. Rooted in the women’s movement of the 1960s, feminist scholars study the various ways in which women and girls have been historically disadvantaged by traditional patriarchal classroom structures. As such, feminist educators argue that in order to create a classroom environment that benefits women and girls, classrooms
