Here's a Canadian production, done around the same time period.
from CBC,

CBC Prime Time News
Studies have shown that *girls* do better academically in all-girl
classes. Prime Time visits a public school to compare a *girls*' physics
class with a co-ed physics class, and speaks with teachers and students
at a *girls*' school, another environment where *girls* fare well. Is
there truly a male bias to traditional teaching strategies that
discourages rather than challenges *girls* in the maths and sciences? Is
segregation the answer? A panel discussion follows.
