They can just be boys and not worry about what the girls might think or how they are perceived by girls. Later, professionals that supported single-sex education started saying that co-education also created stereotypes. Despite the fact that much of the popular science of sex difference has been debunked, the past decade has seen a proliferation of public-school programs modeled on bogus teachings.
