New-look school lunch

An interesting practice in three Kansas City, Missouri middle schools bears watching:  single sex lunches are scheduled for students aged 11-14.

School principals report  girls enjoy their time without boys and boys don’t show off for the girls.  As a result, discipline issues have declined and kids eat better.

If you’re involved in education (professional, parent or volunteer) perhaps you could share this idea.  I believe it’s worth testing.
