Some people think that it is better to educate boys and girls in separate schools. Others, however, believe that boys and girls benefit more from attending mixed schools. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Some would argue that enrolling male and female students in different schools has more benefits, while others say that studying in schools where all genders are allowed, has more advantages. While studying in separate schools would allow students to concentrate on studies more, I believe that educating both sexes in the same school enables them to understand more about each other’s problems.
On the one hand, supporters of the first view believe that students can focus more on their studies if they are studying with only the same sex. This is because adolescents often get distracted by the opposite gender due to a lack of maturity at this phase of life. It leads to poor performances in exams and this has an adverse effect on their future careers. For instance, it is reported by The Times magazine that students who are studying in separate schools, are more likely to perform well in their studies than who do not.
On the other hand, it is thought that attending schools with the opposite sex will bring more fruitful results in terms of respect for others. This is because it gives an opportunity to both genders to understand each other’s difficulties and characteristics, which eventually helps to make them better members of the society as they respect the opposite sex equally. For example, the Indian welfare Organization found that male students who study in mixed schools, often respect females more and form strong relationships with them as they understand them better as compared those who do not.
In conclusion, although studying in separate schools results in good academics scores, studying with the opposite sex is an effective way of learning how to build healthy relationships with them.
