All Girls: Single-Sex Education and Why It Matters
In All Girls, acclaimed journalist Karen Stabiner spends a pivotal year with the young women of two very different girls' schools: Marlborough, an elite prep school in Los Angeles, and The Young Women's Leadership School of East Harlem, an embattled, controversial experiment within the New York City public school system. On both coasts, Stabiner's subjects are fascinating young women on the brink of adulthood, whose choices and academic performance will affect the course of their lives.
All Girls offers an insider's perspective on the daily triumphs and frustrations of teachers and students, parents, and advocates of single-sex education. It dramatically brings to new life the debate about single-sex education and the perils faced by adolescent girls, which Mary Pipher first brought to national attention with her groundbreaking bestseller Reviving Ophelia.
Through Stabiner's vivid, perceptive reporting on her diverse real-life subjects, we recognize our children, our friends, and our relatives. We feel invested in their stories from the very first gripping chapter. The result is an urgent, definitive book for anyone involved in the education of a girl.
