About the author :

David Chadwell is the coordinator for Single-Gender Initiatives within the South Carolina Department of Education. He works with schools across the state at all stages of implementing single-gender programs. He is also a consultant to principals across the country as they work to create single-gender programs and train their teachers. His comments on single-gender education have appeared in multiple media sources, including MSNBC, ABCNews Online, New York Times Magazine, Education Week, Education Next, USA Today, National Association of Elementary School Principals, and multiple state and local newspapers. In 2004 he helped start the first all-day middle school single-gender program in South Carolina. His career in education has taken him from a private Quaker school in Philadelphia, PA, to an international school in Tianjin, China, to public schools in Columbia, SC. He received his master’s degree in teaching from the University of South Carolina and his master’s degree in philosophy and social policy from The American University.


Over 400 public schools in the United States offer single-gender classes or programs, and the number of schools contemplating such initiatives is growing at a rapid pace. In this book, David W. Chadwell, the first state coordinator for single-gender programs, offers a step-by-step process with practical planning tools for implementing high-quality single-sex programs and schools.

Organized into three parts-considering, designing, and implementing single-gender initiatives in local school sites and districts-this resource includes detailed, essential information on

Restructuring to accommodate single-gender classes

Communicating with parents and overcoming resistance

Understanding relevant legal issues

Facilitating instructional changes

Creating a 1- to 3-year plan

Featuring numerous vignettes, current demographic data, and critical insights for professional development, A Gendered Choice provides everything educators need to know about creating single-gender schools or programs.

Abigail Norfleet James

"Single-gender education has reemerged as a sound approach to dealing with the academic issues of both girls and boys. This book provides comprehensive procedures for developing single-gender programs of all types. Chadwell covers every step of the process and points out where the pitfalls lie and how to avoid them. The planning tools at the end of each chapter involve the reader in the process and can serve as activities for workshops as schools and school systems begin the process of designing single-gender programs. This is a comprehensive handbook based on personal experience with developing single-gender educational programs. Chadwell knows what he is talking about not only from personal experience, but also as the statewide coordinator of single-sex initiatives for South Carolina. This is the book to read if you are considering implementing single-gender programs in your school."

Ron Walker

"David W. Chadwell, an ardent activist for single-gender education, brings his passion and expertise to bear within the pages of this important book. It is imperative reading for all who seek to be informed about the viability of single-gender education. It’s a must read! "

Leonard Sax

"David Chadwell’s book is a very useful guide for principals and administrators launching single-gender programs."

Pedro A. Noguera

"A thoughtful text and practical guide for educators who are considering establishing single-gendered classrooms."

Kathy Tritz- Rhodes

“The author does an excellent job of providing the reader with each of the steps needed to successfully implement this type of program and the foresight to think about many of the questions and concerns that will come up along the way. Administrators following the process outlined in this book will impress teachers, parents, and the board with their well thought-out approach.”

Tara McGuigan

"This is a fascinating area and a subject that needs to be explored and researched. With books like this, a more open dialogue can begin, and educators can consider more options for improving the learning curves amongst boys and girls.”

They never deliver on time. Poor communication as (I think) what they have is an automated feedback system for customer queries. I had to remind them time to time until the books were delivered.
