Should boys and girls be in separate classes?

Should boys and girls be in separate classes?

Research have found that kids achieve higher results in single gender classes than in classes.

Boys and girls brains  function in different ways, so they learn very differently. Girls are more passive learners they are usually good visual and auditory learners and do well with lots of class discussions and diagrams. Boys are more kinetic learners and they need to learn by doing. Single gender classes would mean we could cater for different learning styles.

If you're cater the class to the girls interests you will lose the boys and if you cater to the boys interests you will lose the girls.

Boys are often intimidated by girls verbal abilities in classes like English. They score far better without girls around. The same goes for girls in classes like woodwork PE and science.

The opposite gender can also be a big distraction for students. Keeping it out of the classroom can help get work done.  This is why i think that boys and girls should be in separate classes.
