More screwed up children

So National is promising more single sex schools.
DPF points out how children achieve better results at single sex schools.

What he fails to mention is that single sex schools are traumatic for many children.

A gay student in a single sex boy school is going to be picked on, beaten up and probably attempt suicide. At a co-ed school this is less likely to happen.
A non-rugby player at a single sex boy school is also more likely to be attacked. At a co-ed school this is again less likely to happen.

Schooling is not solely about academic results, it is also about creating well rounded individuals. I went to a boys school, and it was not a nice place for people who didn't fit in.
