Lon Woodbury's new Amazon Kindle book, "The Parent Empowerment Handbook Series: Single Sex Schools & Programs" provides readers a broader understanding of the impact Single Sex Schools has on helping at-risk teens develop stable and productive lives.

Settling the Argument on Single Sex Schools
This new Kindle book provides parents and counselors a clear understanding about the argument on whether Single Sex Schools are a good idea or whether the coed educational model is preferable. Through a series of chapters of carefully-woven logic, Lon Woodbury shows exactly why Single Sex Schools sometimes provides a remarkable solution for a conflicted young person of either sex.
"The Parent Empowerment Handbook Series: Single Sex Schools & Programs" begins with a discussion about what parents should do, how and why the Single Sex Schools paradigm re-emerged, and why educating male and female brains calls for a different approach. The author conclusively debunks the idea that "one size fits all" when it comes to youth education as he references a researched body of information on how men and women not only think differently, but also learn differently, too.
Where Have All the Young Men Gone?
Currently, the general coed educational system is skewered to reward the female brain and punish the male brain. This is a fascinating argument that shows how a radical change is needed in the educational system to prevent "the boy crisis" from escalating. The author closes his argument with the following conclusive statement: "Several studies now show that on virtually every measure of academic success, females are outpacing males in both high school and college."
A Highly Recommended Book about Single Sex Schools
While this brief review cannot hope to fully give this book the justice it deserves, I highly recommend this book for anyone who is not familiar with why Single Sex Schools may be the best possible solution when it comes to giving young men a chance and young women an even better opportunity to excel in academic studies and in life.
If you happen to be indecisive about Coed Schools or Single Sex Schools, then you should put this book on your "must read" list. "The Parent Empowerment Handbook Series: Single Sex Schools & Programs" is a book will give you all the researched information you need to draw a clear understanding of how brain chemistry, hormonal regulation, and neurobiology plays a pivotal role in the structure of education.
