Is it possible that teachers are more efficient in schools that are boys or girls only?

  • Boys and girls learn differently

    There is no doubt that boys and girls are different, their brains work in different ways and they have different interests. Most schools these days are aimed towards girls. There is lots of discussion and sedentary classroom activities. Many boys struggle in these environments they can't learn by discussing things, they need to do them.

    If the teacher selects a topic which interest girls often boys are bored and vice versa.

  • The pressure is off in single-sex schools.

    The teachers are more effective as the students will pay more attention as the pressure is off of them to try and impress the other sex. That way they will be themselves and apply themselves more to learning. It also allows the teachers to be able to teach more and not have to deal with so much drama.

  • I do think that teachers in a boys or girls-only school are probably more efficient, because they can focus on the unique styles that work best for the way that boys or girls specifically learn.

    Because studies have shown that boys and girls, in general, learn better with different techniques, I do think that teachers at a boys or girls-only school are probably more efficient, because they can focus specifically on using the techniques that work best for the gender they are teaching.

  • Lack of diversity increases efficiency.

    The fewer different variables that teachers need to deal with, the more efficient they will be. Teachers may have to approach things differently, or deal with extra problems, if they are in a mixed school. If they only have boys, or only have girls, then they can approach things specifically for that group. They will also not have to deal with issues that may arise from mixing boys and girls. These factors would make the teachers more efficient in the use of their energy and time.

  • Teachers are more efficient in single-gender schools, because they can reach the students better.

    When a classroom of students is all comprised of a single sex, then it should be much easier for teachers to psychologically connect with their students and present the syllabus material in ways that engage the students and gets their interest. Girls and boys have different ways of hearing and seeing things, and if the teaching can be catered to their viewpoints, they can learn better.

  • Some people have an easier time dealing with one particular gender so I can see how this would be true.

    Many people in the world have an easier time interacting with one of the two sexes. There are not many people that have the same results dealing with both sexes. If a teacher had a preference for interacting with males then I could see them putting more time and effort into teaching them them then they would with females.

  • Teachers can be more efficient in schools that are boys or girls only, because both genders learn in their own ways.

    Boys and girls learn in different ways, and are more drawn to different subject matter than the other. If teachers are able to direct kids to areas that interest them more, they tend to learn better and be more interested in their work. I do know of a couple of classes in our school district that are boy or girl only, and they are seeing good results and higher test scores, especially from the boys. That is not to say that all schools should be all boy or girl. But maybe this should be an option for parents, especially if they have kids who are struggling in a regular environment.

  • Yes, teachers are more efficient in schools that are boys or girls only, as there are less gender-based distractions.

    In same-sex schools, there is no mixing of genders. The problems with boys and girls fighting each other because of their respective sexes is eliminated with this type of educational configuration. With less distraction, there is more time for better instruction, which should result in better academic results for the students involved.

  • Yes, at least in high school because the sexual tension is reduced.

    When separating boys and girls into their own schools, it has the effect of lessening the tension stemming from competition for romance. Young men would not be competing with each other for the affections of females. Conversely, girls would not be getting jealous or feeling depressed if they were rejected by male suitors; both sexes are free of these distractions and can concentrate more on studies.

  • I think its possible that teachers are more efficient in schools that are girls or boys only.

    When you're just dealing with one gender of students you don't have to take both genders into accountability. There are also a lot less distractions from the opposite sex. I think this can make teaching a lot more efficient for teachers. They have less to deal with so they're able to give their all.

  • It does not make a difference whether a school is all boys or all girls.

    No, it does not make a difference whether a school is all boys or all girls because the material is still the same. Boys and girls don't have anything to do with it. You could make the argument that it would help to have no classmates at all. I think that would help some people learn, but not unisex.

  • No, the teachers are not more efficient in schools that are boys or girls only, because it is the parents that really make a difference in these schools.

    Schools that are only boys or girls schools tend to be private schools that are being paid for by the parents. Because of this, the parents have a more intense interest in their child's education and, therefore, pay more attention to the child's needs and make sure they are studying properly. The teachers help, but they do not have as much of an impact as the actual parent making more of an effort.

  • No, there is no evidence that teachers are more efficient in single-sex schools.

    There is no evidence that teachers are more efficient in single-sex schools. The idea that the presence of the opposite sex makes it harder for kids to learn is insulting, as it implies that kids are so dumb, as to not be able to function in the presence of the opposite sex. Kids need to learn to socialize with members of the opposite sex early, and keeping them isolated from the opposite sex will only hurt them later.

  • I do not feel that teachers are more efficient in schools that are boys or girls only

    I have gone to a public school where there was a mix of boys and girls in every class of every year I attended school. I have done very well for myself and went onto college and attained a very good job and can retire next year at 45 years old. It all depends upon the teacher and how much control they have with the children. They must state their position the very first day of school and they can be just as efficient with a mix of children than one of just boys or just girls.

  • A teacher needs to be able to assist both sexes in educational learning for me to consider them efficient.

    The whole objective behind education in schools is for the student to learn about current events, current research, current findings, etc, and be able to apply them to their everyday lives. Students need to be prepared for their futures, and it is during this time of education where they find what exactly there interests are, and how they can best define the person they will grow up to be. Teachers should be more efficient in co-ed schools, because they need to provide the students with outlets of resources and information to help them decide their futures. I think it is a disrespect to their jobs for them to only be single-sex oriented.
