All Female Education: Self Image and Academic Success of Fourth Through Eight Grade Girls
Master of Science
When investigating whether there are advantages in all female education, it is important to consider student perceptions within these all female schools. This study examines how young women in single sex institutions perceive their educational experience in four categories: academics, resources, participation, and self image. The results of this study indicate that girls in these schools are academically challenged, have a wide range of resources, actively participate in class, and have a positive self image. As a result, single sex schools have a positive effect on their female students.
