Learning Like a Girl
Educating Our Daughters in Schools of Their Own
by Diana Meehan
In this entertaining, inspiring book, Meehan describes her obstacle-ridden journey to create a new institution to serve girls first and foremost, while laying out through vivid stories and examples what girls need to thrive. She explains why co-education so often doesn't serve them (just as it doesn't serve boys), takes sides in the controversy over male/female learning differences, and advocates for schools' role in giving girls tools to navigate through our sexualized, materialistic culture. She also visits other schools around the country-private and public-to show how single sex education works, and how every girl everywhere can benefit from having a classroom of her own.
