UNDATED (WSAU)  The ACLU has sent complaints to the U.S. Department of Education about three Wisconsin schools which separated boys and girls into single-sex classrooms. The group’s Wisconsin chapter is asking if Riverview Middle School in Barron and Robinson and McLenegan Elementary Schools in Beloit are violating Title Nine with the separation.

Title Nine bars sex discrimination in education.

The Beloit School District says the curriculum is the same for single-sex and combined-sex classes at the two schools and parents are allowed to choose which classes their children will attend.
