Will it work?

Can’t be worse than status quo.

Wilkinson County Middle School, located in the heart of the Middle Georgia kaolin belt, has just launched a school experiment. Like at least 13 other public schools across Georgia, Wilkinson Middle has separated its boys and girls into single-gender classes. Boys take math, science, social studies and English classes together, and so do girls.

Principal Aaron Geter figures that about two-thirds of his 330 students eventually will leave high school and get a job helping mine chalk. Still, he worries about them, especially the boys. They may not reach their full potential in school, losing out in the competition for top jobs.

    Ear-Bending Cellmate: That’s right!
