In my point of view girls are benefitting more than boys in single sex schools. Because girls get shortchanged in coed classrooms, moreover in that schools teachers sometimes pay more attention to boys.

Con

I accept and I will argue that Girls do not benefit more in same sex schools that boys.

Could you clarify your opinion? do you have any arguments?

Con

In same sex schools, boys can now be themselves. They aren't going to feel they have to show off or not look too smart to impress the girls. They have more an opportunity to learn and take up different extra curricular activities.

In same sex schools for boys, they canals match boys' learning style. For instance, most boys have a harder time sitting till and concentrating than girls. In sam sex schools, teachers work just with boys, so they understand boys better and the whole school is adapted to their learning style.

In same sex schools for boys, there is less drama. Let's be honest here. Girl can cause a lot of drama. I'm a girl, and even though I don't cause drama, most girls do. Boys can have a drams-free environment to focus on their studies.

I see your point of view. But If you are girl, you should know that girls' positive, exuberant attitude toward their studies tends to disappear as they begin to feel less successful. They start to watch their male peers outperform them in math and science. As boys begin to gain confidence, girls start to lose it. Furthermore, adolescence is such a fragile time for girls. When they have adolescent changes, some of them become depressed, develop an addiction, or suffer from an obsession with weight.

If boys are so confident, wouldn't thy benefit MORE by not havinggirls surrond them and drag down they're confidence? Also, why is our solution for unconfident girls, to isolate themfrom the more confident gender?

To be frank, we all know that all-girl schools are hotter than all-boy schools, since lesbians are objectively hotter than gay dudes.

Whether that's a pro argument (dem lesbians getting their lesbian sex) or a con argument (guys benefit from girls going to single-sex schools as it gives them stuff to watch), is debater's discretion.
