A new study in Science Magazine is calling into question the logic behind single-sex schooling. The report, "The Pseudoscience of Single-Sex Schooling," says that single-sex education is "justified by weak, cherry-picked, or misconstrued scientific claims rather than by valid scientific evidence." This has stirred up controversy amongst same-sex education advocates.

Dr. Lise Eliot, a neuroscience professor at Rosalind Franklin University, author of "Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow Into Troublesome Gaps and What We Can Do About It," and co-author of the study, speaks about her findings.
