Sweden Trials First Single Sex Class!

International Policy

In an attempt to give pupils a chance to open up, Sweden is trying out a new classroom based on gender. Adolfsberg School in the city of Örebro is the one that started such an experiment. The experiment aims at identifying whether the students feel more comfortable to open up if they are in a single sex class room.

But as per the local reports, students were completely against it. The teachers say that they received feedback from some girls that they find it difficult to give presentations  in front of some guys. 

Head teacher Anneli Widestrand said: “I think it's a good way to break the pattern, to reach students.” The temporary move was designed “to test new ways to meet students on an individual basis”, she said. She believes some girls do not speak up in class when surrounded by boys.

Parents were informed by letter about the change, which is in place for all subjects except for science.
