Manliness and womanhood: how educate in the difference

M.ª Victoria Gordillo Álvarez-Valdés


In last years, coeducation has been proposed in Spain as the best and unquestionable educational way. However, looking at what happened in other countries, it seems necessary to analyze the consequences not only in academic achievements, as often were made, but in personal development particularly in affective aspects. If that is not taken into account, it would happen that an ideological choice without enough scientific evidence will prevail. As a result of that, a free and reasoned choice about the different educational approaches in secondary school (single sex or coed) will be prevented.


Key Words: coeducation; women; affective education; adolescence, singlesex schools.
