To all the comments that there is a choice whether to send your child to a mixed or single sex school: my son is in first year of a boys’ school. There is plenty of good schools in our area (south Dublin), but all the mixed schools are private. We applied to two nevertheless, and didn’t get a place! I wanted him to go to a mixed school, he is not sporty, lacks social skills and gets on much better with girls than with boys. I am not Irish, where I come from single sex schools were abolished 70 years ago, and guess what, life went on.

Can any of us genuinely argue that separating girls and boys in schools is a practice worth defending, asks Aodhán Ó Ríordáin.

    @Zmeevo Libe: Sometimes people move to get on waiting lists. Good luck. I hope he finds some friends among the boys too. It’s not great to keep to one group always.
