Just because you say they "were coed because it was the only way for
them to remain viable" doesn't necessarily make it accurate. It may be
accurate about R. Miller's day school. I don't know, though from what I
know about R. Miller it probably is. But that doesn't make it accurate
about HILI or Flatbush or Ramaz or Maimonides. And from what I've read,
it wasn't necessarily the case for all of those schools.
