With the roll-out of Common Core, the emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) is only going to continue, especially for girls.
As school enrollment for fall begins in earnest this month, I anticipate more parents will at least consider an all girls school for their daughters.
Some observers strongly support the notion that students in single sex environments excel when gender stereotypes are broken down. That would mean girls would maximize their potential in STEM subjects in an all-girl learning environment. However, as in most education-related conversations, data can be found to support both sides of the argument.
