single gender classrooms

Hello Kids.
i've been listening to a lot of public radio - which in the states means its the kind of radio that has very little music, and lots of talking. (aka: old people radio)

so they had this report about brain development between genders.
developing males between the schooling ages of kindergarten thru highschool.

since most of us tigers are guys - i wanted to see what the thoughts are on our education process versus gender and social development.
boys supposedly learn better when standing up, moving around, with higher volume and everything that you would associate with males evolving to be hunter gatherers.
boys seem to learn better when "unhindered" by social and sexual pressures when learning without the presence of females. and vice versa.
our school system is inherently initially "easier" for females to perform. (other than intermediate and advanced math - where it is more predisposed to spacial relations, where boys excel).

this made me wonder:
how would we be different if we had attended a single gender school? (boys to boys school and girls to girls school la!)
how different would we have turned out?

(development between both genders are supposed to catch up and be equal by the time we reach our early twenties - which should have already happened)
