  • I belive single-sex classrooms are benificial

    I take the position that same-sex classrooms are beneficial to a child's social and academic health because many parents believe that coed classrooms cheat girls and boys, scientists say that different genders learn differently and that the opposite gender could be a distraction.
    One reason is that many believe that coed classrooms “cheat girls” because they may be quieter than boys and in the same-sex classrooms
    For example “Girls are more apt to answer questions aloud in class as well as ask them. Girls are learning to be more academically competitive” says principal Jill Rojas who works with same-sex classrooms.
    Also many teachers, parents and students say that typical gender stereotypes aren't as prominent, not to mention that the girls don't feel the need to put on makeup or fix up their hair “At my high school, girls would rarely, if ever, put on makeup or fix their hair in any special way.” says Carolyn Heneghan, who used to attend a same-sex highschool. In addition a researcher found that in a coed classroom boys shouted out their answers without raising their hands and were praised, but when giros did the same they were told to raise their hands. Additionally, boys were told to figure it out [the problem] themselves while girls were given the answers.
    A second reason is that we as humans may we wired differently in the way we learn. For example boys are a bit more active in the way they learn, they need to be moving around and exercising. Boys like to learn “hands on” while girls do better reading a book and writing. Some educators say that this is why boys sometimes have behavior issues in school, they’re not programed for it.
    Also, research shows that boys learn better in cooler rooms, while girls learn better in warmer ones. In a same-sex classroom they could set up the room this way to make the students comfortable. Lastly teachers say that boys don't squirm around in their chairs as much because they are getting the proper exercise in their same-sex class.
    Finally, the opposite gender could be a distraction to some students. I believe it is common knowledge that many teens, both male and female, spend a lot of time trying to impress the other gender. This could be a huge distraction because people a lot of times end up fighting about who they like.
    Educators say the girls don't do as much “boy talk” in a same-sex classroom as they did in a coed environment, and they had less petty grudges and less students dropped out due to pregnancy.

  • Because it's better for schools

    Single gender classrooms are good because they keep kids from getting in relation ships at an early age. The human race will not be ruined or die out forever. That's too over dramatic. It's good for growing up because girls have different bodies than boys. Who's with me?? I'm yes

  • They should not be allowed

    Kids will have trouble dealing with life in the future, but also they will not be able to be comfortable around the opposite sex when forced to interact with them or during things like health class. Boys need to learn to interact with girls and girls need to learn to communicate with boys.

  • Yes maybe they should

    Maybe it is better to allow single sex classrooms so students would not be distracted by the opposite sex for one and would be able to focus more his or her work as opposed to when they are mixed together they will tend to focus more each other in some cases.

  • Single sex classrooms are the best

    Single sex classrooms should be allowed because it will slow down the young adult sex drive. Single sex classrooms will cause less boners and less hard parts single se classrooms are safer and better. Kids can concentrate way better with out the opposite gender in the room. Single sex classrooms are the best

  • Single Sex classrooms are Dumb

    Its dumb.. Males and females should stay in the same class because what about relationships.. It can cause problems, meaning with all girls, maybe there would be a lot of fights. Ukhdsgwyifherukgjydtfryi fhdjhf fhd fh fjsdkn fjdn f g d t b d s g f s d g tg r

  • Coed schools promote healthy social relationships and help curb gender stereotypes.

    • “Research conducted by Penn State University in 2011 found no evidence that single-sex schools generate positive effects • “http://everydaylife.Globalpost.Com/advantages-coed-high-school-11115.Html
    • “Men and women live and work together in almost every aspect of personal and professional life which means that coeducational schools provide a much more realistic model of training boys and girls to interact with members of the opposite sex.”

  • Because it is bad for growing up

    It is proven that it is better for boys in Single gender schools and when we start single gender schools it will go on forever and the genders will not know each other and the humans race will die out forever this is not good who is with me??? By me

  • It sucks man

  • Single sex classrooms should not be allowed.

    Single sex classrooms should not be allowed because kids need to learn to communicate with the opposite sex, because the real world is not like this. When you go to the grocery store they are not going to be a cereal isle for men, and cereal isle for women. This also prevents men from learning how to treat women wiht respect and it also prevents girls to learn how to respect men.
