The Educational Effective of Forced Separation on Twins

This is a very interesting research paper by Jamison J. Grimes of the University of Toledo. The qualitative study reviews existing research on twins in school and also interviews three sets of twins.

To no one's surprise, the research and the interviews uncover negative effects of forced separation of twins.

This is another study that questions why schools still routinely separate multiples, rather than taking their individual needs in account on a case by case basis.

The first few pages of the study are available for free. The rest of the study can be purchased at the site.
