in every age group and in almost every subject area, led by experienced educators from all over the United States as well as from Canada, Australia, Germany, and Spain.
Who should attend?
A secondary audience for our conferences includes researchers who are interested in single-sex education - or more broadly,
who are interested in gender differences in education -- as well as educators who are leading coed classrooms, but who have an interest in gender differences.
