Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Integrated but separate. That's one of those things I'd note and file away. I have no idea if it means anything, what that might be, or how it all works out (in both senses).

But I' remember it.

I believe that girls do better if separated from boys in school. It may also be the case that boys also do better.

That said, there are some problems with sex segregation.

Im sure I've read somewhere that most of seperate sex schools apparent difference in performance is down to socio-economic factors. Richer parents with more of a culture of family education are more likely to select single sex schools, and so it only appears that single sex schools outperform mixed sex schools.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
