Cod schools are better than schools with only one gender.
Debate Rounds (4)
Before arguing, it seems like a good idea to define terms
Co-education (co-ed): The education of pupils of both sexes together.
Better: More desirable, satisfactory, or effective:
Co-education promotes diversity and allows children if adults to be exposed to an environment in which they can grow from experience. Growing is a learning experience and can only be unlocked when one is given the chance to be around all genders. Coeducation is a different learning tool in which students can prepare themselves in the outside world. It is very important for kids to know how the gender acts so they aren't completely stunned when they grow up. School is all about dealing with problems and being exposed to the other gender teaches boys and girls to be used to the opposite gender, it will stimulate a source of maturity between these two genders and as they become an adult they have the people's skills for all kind of people coeducational schools also make sure that there is no sexism between communities. Keeping two genders apart creates tension and makes one feel superior to the other because of being kept apart too long. I know that these people can see each other outside of school but it is still really awkward because everyone knows kids spend a lot of time at school and most of their learning happens there so do we really want society's children suffer this way? Sexism keeps society from growing, Everyone knows that in the outside world both of these genders will meet and clash not being able to live in workplaces or stuff and limit growth in economy and stuff because of people's incapability to successfully socialize with the other gender.

"Co-education promotes diversity and allows children if adults to be exposed to an environment in which they can grow from experience. Growing is a learning experience and can only be unlocked when one is given the chance to be around all genders"
Citation needed? Is there evidence that children grow more from the experience of learning in a cp-ed school?
" students can prepare themselves in the outside world. It is very important for kids to know how the gender acts so they aren't completely stunned when they grow up."
It seems that you are assuming that children do not interact socially at all outside of school. This is clearly not the case. Students have many opportunities to make friends of the other gender when interacting in the outside world. As well as this, many single-sex schools have partner schools of the other gender, and provide opportunities for the schools to interact.
"Keeping two genders apart creates tension and makes one feel superior to the other because of being kept apart too long."
Once again, the genders are not segregated outside of school. Also, this again needs evidence. How do you know that single-sex schools cause their pupils to be sexist.
"Everyone knows that in the outside world both of these genders will meet and clash not being able to live in workplaces or stuff and limit growth in economy and stuff because of people's incapability to successfully socialize with the other gender"
What are you trying to say here?
Now, given that the burden of proof seems to be shared in this debate, I must give arguments for the superiority of single sex schools.
1. Co-ed schools have worse results than single-sex schools. In Seoul, South Korea, students are fully randomly assigned to co-ed schools or single-sex schools, with no opt-out. Research by the University of Pennsylvania has been conducted into their comparative effectiveness. Because the assignment is random, there is no difference in the comparative funding of the schools. This research has shown that both girls and boys in single-sex education are significantly more likely to attend a college. They also have significantly higher test scores . This proves that co-ed schools are not better in learning, surely the most important aspect of a school. However, it is possible that this study is wrong. After all, one study proves nothing. Thus, I draw your attention to research in Florida. This research, conducted by Stetson University, proves that 49% more boys in single-sex education are judged 'proficient' by FCAS. 16% more girls were judged proficient. Once again this was random, and classes were kept the same . I think this is proof beyond reasonable doubt that co-ed classes give worse learning outcomes than single-sex classes
2. Co-ed schools increase girls' conformity to gender stereotypes. Another study shows that girls attending co-educational classes for physics are far less likely to be engaged in physics, and far more likely to agree with the statement "physics is for boys" than their counterparts in single-sex classes . Once again, this study involved randomly assigned students and was meticulously conducted. Girls schools also produced more female mathematicians, engineers and linguists than co-ed schools. You made the point that sexism 'keeps society from growing'. This is true, but it seems sexism is perpetrated more by co-ed schools than by single-sex ones.
3. The brains of boys work differently to the brains of girls. Boys have different development of their minds to girls, and may be faster or slower to grasp different concepts. This means that a single-sex education can specialise teaching techniques to fit the needs of the different genders. A co-ed schooling can not do this, which means both genders are worse off. Don't believe me? Believe Dr Natalya Kuindzhi, a medical doctor who has conducted a study on this subject. According to Dr Kuindzhi, " by the time children join school, girls display significantly higher left-brain development, while boys continue to be dominated by right-brain activity." . "This puts girls at a greater advantage within a school situation. They meet teachers" expectations fully in standard exercises and are primarily directed towards obedience and rote learning. Boys find it hard to compete. ", she says. In a single-sex system, lessons are tailored for different gender's needs.
Summary: I have proven conclusively with an evidence-based argument that single-sex schools are more effective than co-ed schools. Pro has cited no sources and draws conclusions based on nothing. Please vote Con.
