This review of current research on girls' achievement includes the debate about single-sex schools and their effect on girls' performance, and the setting up of single-sex classes in mixed-sex schools to counteract gender-related differences in performance. The authors show that the performance patterns of girls and boys are changing, with new complexities replacing the traditional stereotypes.
