In Australia studies tend to show that boys perform better academically in a co-ed environment but girls perform worse, is that a cultural thing or is it the case in other parts of the western world?

Studies show the same thing in the US; boys get more attention from the teachers and tend to do better.

Edit: see correction below.

Checked with the wife; the studies show that boys receive more attention, but that did not mean that they did better academically.

Peter D. Carmen, the students' lawyer, said while the college was actively recruiting females, the trustees had been developing the plan to admit male students.

The lawsuit _ filed in state Supreme Court, Cayuga County _ also alleges that campus tour guides were specifically instructed in their 2003-2004 training manual to say "no" when asked if the college was going coed.

"We're asking for very limited relief," Carmen said. "We just want the women who applied to, and were accepted by, a woman's college to be able to graduate from a women's college."



The female students appear to have contracted to attend a women's college, admitting males is therefore a breach of contract. The women have a valid point, this has nothing to do with discrimination.
