Description
 
Twenty years ago, all-girls schools seemed headed for extinction, a minor footnote in the broad story of American education. Today, they are experiencing a dramatic revival. Here, Ilana DeBare interweaves the first complete history of girls’ schools in America with her own personal story of co-founding an all-girls school in Oakland, CA, in 1999. A fascinating chronicle of daily life at girls’ schools over the past 200 years, DeBare’s book also examines the strong convictions of parents & educators that have fueled the rise of new all-girls schools throughout the country. An important contribution to the debate over single-sex education in America. Photos.
