Originally published in 1971. This second volume in this three-part set examines specific aspects of social relationships within the school and demonstrates that co-educational and single-sex schools are fundamentally different communities. These volumes examine in detail the social and psychosocial differences between co-educational and single-sex schools. This volume provides a wealth of evidence from pupils and ex-pupils about such aspects as discipline, bullying, happiness, anxiety and attitudes to sex.
