The IV International Congress of Single-Sex Education organised by EASSE took place in Lisbon, on April 19th and 20th, 2013. There, specialists coming from many different countries presented studies and reflections on experiences developed in extremely varied school contexts.
The different conferences and reports underlined the way in which single-sex education fully explores the capacities of both boys and girls, as it adapts itself to their different rhythms of development and learning, enabling personalised teaching in the classroom. For these reasons, it is considered a model in the forefront of education, facilitating a substantial improvement of academic results.
The following lecturers sum up the most relevant aspects of the reflection developed throughout the Congress and it wants to be a tool that helps parents and teachers in their educational tasks.
