 The B.C. Catholic has story from Chris Miller of the Western Catholic Reporter, about the myth that boys and girls learn the same way:
 Teachers who understand the differences between boys and girls will be more effective in the classroom, an American educator told homeschooling parents from across the West.
“Almost universally, when you separate boys and girls, you can teach them better, behavioural problems go down, and all sorts of things improve,” said Andrew Pudewa, keynote speaker at the annual Western Canadian Catholic Home School Conference.
Atheist psychologists have been promoting the notion that boys and girls learn in the same ways, Pudewa told the March 15-17 conference held at Providence Renewal Centre.
