single sex schools. I feel that my academic studies and results were superior for attending a single sex school; however I also felt that I missed out on a lot of life education by not having boys around much in my formative teenage years. Research suggests that my experience is common to many students of single sex schools. Lots of studies show that girls do better academically at single sex schools, as do boys, especially in high school. The theory is that because girls mature faster than boys it can be difficult for teachers to accommodate the differences in development rates in a co-ed environment. Other contributing factors are simply that there are less distractions for both boys and girls in a single sex environment. The game of who likes who, who's going out with who, who's cool and who's not, is what's really important at most co-ed schools. This is less obvious at a single sex school, but who's cool still counts and gossip still takes up a lot of time in class. Another benefit of a single sex education is the freedom to make educational choices without worrying that you may be the only girl or boy in the class. The threat of judgment because you want to study traditionally masculine subjects like physics and maths, or traditionally girly subjects like literature is also removed. But what about life skills? A co-educational environment is obviously more reflective of society -one does need to engage with members of the opposite sex fairly regularly after all. Research in this area show that students from single sex schools are more hesitant expressing their views in front of members of the opposite sex* and have more trouble forming friendships with the opposite sex as well. This was my experience after leaving an all girls school and heading out into the world; I had trouble talking to boys at all! So in the end, what is the better option? It depends on the school, a good co-ed school will be better than a bad single sex one and vice versa. And I think it also depends on the child. If your child may benefit from a more encouraging academic environment then perhaps a single sex school is the better option. On reflection, I would have preferred to attend a co-ed school, but am eternally grateful for the excellent education I received. So what's the answer to my question? It depends.

Having experienced both types of schools. they will lose out. even the lazy pupils will pull up their socks as they would not want to be left behind. They therefore get a different perspective of things as well as learn to understand one another better. I must stress that I was the recipient of all these advantages. Besides this. Studying in the single-sex school will not benefit a student much in terms of obtaining social skills. I attended a single-sex primary school and did my secondary studies in a co-educational school. When both sexes interact. I feel that a student studying in a "co-ed" school will benefit from exposure to the other sex. Therefore. I have weighed the pros and cons and have decided that without a doubt. In a "co-ed" environment. Being in a "co-ed" school does not mean socializing with the opposite sex only. Lee • During my school days. I have matured in many ways and I can vouch that co-education is more beneficial than being in a single-sex schoo . the boys tend to tone down their behavior so that the girls will be friends with them.

As everybody is working harder to obtain better grades. The main advantage of a co-educational school. co-educational schools are better. better known as a "co-ed" school. I feel that. By studying in a "co-ed" school. The main source of motivation for students to work hard is when they see that everyone is progressing ahead. I feel that some boys in single-sex schools do not know how to behave when they meet girls. With the interaction in class. due to lack of exposure. It means that a student can maintain a balance when choosing friends and learn to treat everyone the same. even the shyest student will feel comfortable with the opposite sex and can soon work together normally. I really think being in a "co-ed" school promotes better behavior. in fact. they would be above all that. some students from single-sex schools tend to have a warped view of the opposite sex as they do not understand the opposite sex enough. I think that students from "co-ed" schools will be more mature and behave in a more politically-correct fashion! In conclusion. Also. is that it encourages competition between boys and girls. Boys are naturally rough by nature and girls more gentle. both sexes get to interact with one another.by G.
