researcher claims, Most people will view single-sex schools as academically tough

er, more rigorous, probably more effective, but perhaps less enjoyable than coed
schools (Salamone 1).
Within the last few years there has been a surprising increase of interest in si
ngle-sex education. Researchers have found that boys and girls learn differently
. This contributes to why the idea of single-sex education is being brought up.
Studies have found that it s not sufficient to just put boys and girls into separa
te classrooms and continue teaching the same way as before. Instead, educators m
ust recognize these learning differences in order to improve the academic perfor
mance of their students.
Boys and girls learning styles differ mostly within their physiological senses,
such as differences in the ability to hear, as well as differences in higher-lev
el cortical functions (Sather 1).
When researching these differences, scientists have found that girls can hear up
to two to four times better than boys. This was proved when researchers placed
a seven-year old female and a seven-year old male in a sound proof booth, both h
earing the same noises at various frequencies (Madigan 2). With this information
being provided, teachers must realize the following. If you have a classroom wi
th a female teacher who is speaking in a tone of voice which seems normal to the
teacher, there s a good chance that the boys at the back of the classroom aren't
paying much attention, partly because they can barely hear what she's saying. On
the other hand, if you have a male teacher speaking in a tone of voice which se
ems normal to him, a girl in the front row may feel that the teacher is practica

Co-education means the education of boys and girls in same school,colleges or un

iversities. This is a modern concept and has brought remarkable change in the so
ciesties. It was first introduces in Switzerland, but now it has become popular
almost in all Europe and America.
The supporters of this system favour the system mainnly on two grounds,one econo
mical and other sociological.In first place they says that co-education is an ec
onomical measure for poor countries like India,Pakistan and many others.

It is not possible for poor countries to build seperate colleges for both sexes
as it requires a lot of capital.A lot of money is required to build libraries,la
bortaries and the whole building of a college or university.
In second place people claims that when both sexes will study in same class room
s their confidene level will increase and the relation between both sexes will d
eepen and strengthen its roots and that will be benificial for both sexes in the
ir future life.
When the both sexes will study together the environment will be totaly changed,
boys will become less coarse and girls less morbid and that will be benificial f
or both sexes.
More over, this type of system will blow the spirit of fight in getting more mar
ks so,there will be more competetion and more intellectuals will be produced.
When both sexes will spend time in same class they will be able to understand th
eir natures and that will be helpful in their future life.
To educate both sexes under the same roof will require less number of teachers a
nd that will be much better from the economic point of view.
When both sexes will be taught in same class room the fence of shyness will be r
emoved and will encourage both sexes to talk and discuss matters freely and conf
On the other hands some people have different opinion they claims that this syst
em will bring vulgarity and obscenity in the society. they claims that youth is
blind ,so both sexes should not be taught under same roof. They says that both s
exes in their teen ages when they meet freely , there are chances that they may
become the victims of thier emotions.They claims that this type of educations wi
ll remove the necessary distance between the two sexes and that can be harmfull.
In the end i can conclude that in some situations this system of education is ne
cessary but in some situations not.
