I don't think that girls should go to one girls and boys should go to one school the y need to be mixed
I-am-a-panda

Pro

First I will affirm what the argument states. The argument states not that Girls should only go to girls schools and boys only go to boys school, but should they?

My opponent affirms they should not but does not give reasoning.

I propose these arguments:

1) Having the same sex provides a better environment for learning.
2) The opposite sex is often a distraction.

1) In an environment, a male feels naturally more comfortable with a fellow male. And the same with females. Applying this to school, students are more comfortable to speak their minds with other men rather than wome nand men.

2) In a mixed class, girls can distract boys and likewise, merely because of hormones. A girl likes a boy , she will concentrate more on him and likewise. Seperating them is more beneficial.

I await my opponents response.

Pro

My opponent has no provided a response, so I will further extend my arguments.

I will discuss how single sex school are more beneficial to the teacher as well a sthe student.

The teacher:
A teacher teaching a class of 25 boys is going to have an easier job than teaching a group of 13 girls and 12 boys. The reason being is that boys generally do certain aspects of learning different than females. Males are generally better at pracitcal work as opposed to females who are generally better are languages. Teacher's that can adapt to this teach better.

The student:
In a class of boys, a male will not be afraid to speak his mind, as he is himself as male. In a mixed class, he is also under the pressure of the other sex and therefore may not speak his mind. The Consequences of this are that he may not learn the topic as good as he would if he participated.

This is my further reasoning and hope my opponent responds.

Due to the fact my opponent has only produced one line and did not debate the topic at all, I urge a Pro vote.

As a quick reminder, this was a 5 minute per round debate, meaning any arguments would be small.

If you read the resolution literally, being con on it implies every school should exist of no more than two students :)
