I personally do not have a problem with single sex school, but if you are against homosexuality then it wouldn't be a very good idea then. I feel as if love is love and people will find a way to get what they want or who they want. Homosexuality is big in single sex schools just as well as in co-ed schools. So I personally don't have a problem with single sex schools.

I accept this challenge, I assume that Pro has the burden of proof to show that single sex schools are a good idea.

I would really like Pro to expand on the idea about homosexuality. After all you say it can occur in both schooling systems so what would be the benefit in single sex schools for homosexual students?

My main contention in this debate will be that same sex schooling is a bad idea as it is not reflective of the society we live in. Everywhere you go there are men and women, as such a single sex school does not represent normal life. How can teaching children to be normal citizens be effective in an environment that is not what is encountered in society at large.

I look forward to hearing my opponents argument against my major contention, and hearing further arguments why single sex education is a better option than coeducation.

Over to you.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct = forfeit Con had the better arguments anyway. Pro didn't explain why homosexuality would run rampant in same-sex schools. Con explains that you can't raise children to live in a society where they will have to relate to the opposite gender if you attempt to segregate them from the opposite gender for most of their early life.
