The article presents the views of Sophia Berman of New York and Ofir Manor of Colorado on the issue of putting boys and girls in separate classrooms. According to Berman, boys and girls should be in separate classes because putting them together can be distracting. But Manor, on the other hand, thinks boys and girls need to work and learn together so that nobody will be left behind in their lessons.
