The IBSC received “top billing” in a special Sunday section of the NYTimes. In the Times' SUNDAY DIALOGUE -- How to Educate Boys, Dr. Joe Cox wrote a response to an earlier op-ed piece which discussed if and how schools should address the differences in how boys and girls learn. The IBSC is pleased to have been represented in this discussion, and we encourage your continued participation in the dialog on single-gender education.
