Unfortunately this will continue as long as segregated education is tolerated. Boys often have limited access to subjects like art and Home economics while Girls are often denied the opportunity to study physics or metalwork.
People often quite rightly criticise the segregation which used to take place in South Africa and the US and still takes place in Northern Ireland but maybe they should be looking closer to home.
IMHO state funding for segregated schools should be phased out.
