Are Same-Sex schools better for education?
Debate Rounds (3)
I do not think same-sex schools are better for education because in order for the world to go-round it takes people of different ages, genders, and races and schools are a good way to start to introduce children to this. Especially when it comes to group work all different genders call for a great group. You are basically restricting girls to only have girls as friends and boys to only have boys as friends.
1. Public Opinions and observations on Single Sex (Gender restricting) schools: 
- Some parents have reported that they do not want their child to be surrounded/in proximity of a opposite gender individual (ie. a boy near a girl scholar) from an early age because that can be a source of distraction;
-The drop-out rate seems to reduce in classes/schools that are gender restricting/oriented; 
- Problems can be addressed as a whole when the class is composed of a singular gender, where the teacher/instructor/professor can address concerns that can arise (One guy might be unsure of something he might ask his friend who also has the same problem vs asking a girl who will not have it). 
2. What the Studies show: 
- It has been proven that boys, in general, are able to better accumulate information and study in a much cooler environment, the contrary being for girls (ie. they prefer warmer rooms) 
- More than one-third of Americans feel parents should have the option of sending their child to a single-sex school. (25% of respondents oppose the idea.) 
- Dominance (usually revolved around male dominance) is being reduced from an early age where girls will be less pressured by the male dominant subjects such as math and sciences.  Boys on the other hand will feel the same in regards to female dominated subjects such as English arts and poetry 
-Federal law supports the option of single-sex education. In 2006, Education Secretary Margaret Spellings eased federal regulations, allowing schools to offer single-sex classrooms and schools, as long as such options are completely voluntary.
My points prove that gender specified controlled environments have been proven to be more effective than cramming all the genders in one place. You will have to prove why that is not so.
"There are very few parents who feel they don't want their child in proximity of the opposite sex for non-legitimate reasons, studies have also shown that theses are not because of distraction therefore that is a stupid answer"
I suppose you did not read entirely my statement nor did you look at the reference, but I will give you a some numbers nonetheless.
This is what I wrote "More than one-third of Americans feel parents should have the option of sending their child to a single-sex school. (25% of respondents oppose the idea." I will do some simple math with the provided info. The population of America (USA) is estimated at 318.9 million  ;now, 318,900,000 X (1/3) = 106.3 million. I know that these studies have not been done on every single American but I am using that population number as an arbitrary number. Now it says that 25% oppose the idea. 318,900,000 X (1/4) = 79.725 million. Now lets see which is the highest. 79.725 million / 106.3 million = 0.75. Therefore we can draw the conclusion that (if the numbers weren't obvious) the individuals/parents that are pro same sex education is 1.333X bigger than those who oppose it.
I will keep this brief since it is the end of the debate.
I do not agree with you since you have not given any references to backup your claims. We will let the voters decide who had better conduct/proof.
Thank you for the debate and good luck :)
