Forget Merit Pay

It's all about sex. Let's bring back single-sex schools.

And make sure the teachers are the right sex too. Here's a new study claiming that boys learn better from men, and that girls learn better from women.

In college, I had great teachers of both sexes. They knew everything about literature, and woe to those who dared dispute them.

In high school, I had terrible teachers of both sexes. This was an era, though, where it was regarded as hip to play Neil Young songs in class rather than assign anything so inconvenient as books.

Frankly, I find it tough to see this as much of an issue. But I could be wrong.

What do you think?
