    Again, western countries are calling to separate boys and girls in schools, let us read ...

    Boys need to be taught separately from girls from the age of five to prevent them being damaged by the education system, experts claimed.

    Dr Leonard Sax argues that boys are "turned off" by starting formal education too soon when they are expected to sit down and keep quiet in class. And, because they develop at different rates to girls, they can be discouraged from learning while very young when sat alongside female classmates.

    He said: "With boys you have to start right away. If you wait until secondary school, you have waited too long. From the age of five, there are clear advantages in all-boys' education when teachers know how to take advantage of it. "

    Sax refers to a few other studies that he says show that girls and boys draw differently, including one from a group of Japanese researchers who found girls' drawings typically depict still lifes of people, pets or flowers, using 10 or more crayons, favoring warm colors like red, green, beige and brown; boys, on the other hand, draw action, using 6 or fewer colors, mostly cool hues like gray, blue, silver and black. This apparent difference, which Sax argues is hard-wired, causes teachers to praise girls' artwork and make boys feel that they're drawing incorrectly.

    Glory to Allah who says in the Qur'an about that issue: (And the male is not like the female) [Sûrat Al-Imrân-(The Family of Imran) verse36].

    Dr. Sax believes girls also benefit from single-sex education because they can concentrate on subjects such as maths, which is traditionally seen as a "male" interest.

    WeMuslims can find in the Sunnah the same instructions as the prophet peace be upon him orders us by saying: {separate between boys and girls in beds} as both of them must sleep in a separated beds if they became adults.

    Also the great religion of Islam orders men not to look at forbidden things by saying: (Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.) [Sûrat An-Nûr-The Light-verse 30].

    At the end we say that whoever read the latest researches in many disciplines will discover that western scientists and researchers are calling people to avoid alcohol, not to eat too much and women to wear decent clothes, so they returns to the principles of Islam.

    Allah almighty says: (And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.) [Sûrat Al-ImrânSûrat Al-Imrân-verse85].

    My experience of education during kindergarten:

    I liked phonics and math a lot. Wanted to do that more.
    Hated coloring pictures though. Thought it was stupid and pointless, but I did enjoy art class, however.

    Another thing that public schools do is hold back bright students instead of allowing them to move at their own pace. They may even go as far as not allowing them to skip a grade as was my case despite doing course work above the current grade.

    I suspect the reason for this was monetary :) on the part of the school.

    Boys do learn differently from girls.
    Boys should be separated from girls with regard to education.

    The above is my opinion.

    I do hope and pray we won't just place our youth in a one size fits all catgegory, i. e., based too oftentimes on those who can't or won't heed our reality checks/wake up calls..

    Now and then, I do come across those who are the exceptions, and who also kinda sorta let me know when my takes have gotten a bit dated etc.

    FYI...

    So now everybody wants to go BACK to the African way of raising and teaching children, huh? Of course nobody wants to just come out and say that...and obviously it didn't or doesn't have any merit until THEY RECOGNIZE it....but the reality is what it is. It's an African system that finally others are seeing for what it is!
