Single sex schools ruin the natural growth environment of students. And when they get out of these schools they are faced with a lot of problems in talking with opposite sex people of similar age.

Hello, I'm hoping for a good debate!

First off, I'll dissect your argument.

1) "Single sex schools ruin the natural growth environment of students."
- This is untrue. You are not guaranteed to have your relationships ruin because you attend an all boys school. A niche user states (about his attendance at The Roxbury Latin School, an all-boys school), "The environment you learn in, growing close to so many boys is something you cannot get anywhere else, it's one of the greatest benefits to the school." According to his quote, all-boys school are not detrimental to natural growth.

2) "And when they get out of these schools they are faced with a lot of problems in talking with opposite sex people of similar age."
- Secondly, this isn't proven anywhere when I researched. The benefit to a same-sex school is social pressure is less strenuous. Yet, there is no evidence to suggest students do not have a functioning love life after attending a same gender school.

Lastly, schools are about learning. Some research indicates boys and girls function better in different environments from each other. Therefore, a separation of campuses for boys and girls is a great way to fuel their education. For a complete and fulfilling education, a same-sex school is triumphant.
