Mixed Schools versus Separate Schools
by ABHISHEK SINHA
Some people think that it is better to educate boys and girls in separate schools. Others, however, believe that boys and girls benefit more from attending mixed schools.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Certain group of society feels that it is beneficial for boys and girls to be educated in separate institutions, whereas it has an opponent view who trust and support both the sex studying under one roof. This is also called Co education. I think going to a mixed education school has a lots of benefit such as gaining confidence and not being shy, cost effectiveness, respect for women as well as being more responsible citizen.
It has been observed that children who study at mixed gender school are more open and gains confidence as a natural phenomenon of being appreciated by opposite sex. Boys as being close to girls and vice versa gives a good opportunity to understand each other. This later on turns into respecting each other rather than being bias. Being attracted to opposite gender helps them to take ownership and eventually are being a bonhomie and responsible person. Single roof education reduces the cost of education as two different infrastructure is not required. My cousin is one of the best example. He was very shy when he was in boys school, however, after being admitted to a coeducational he in the virtue of showing himself special, he improved dramatically and today he is a confident and bonhomie person.
Having said that, people will advocate in support of separate schools for genders for risk of being engaged and committing unfair activities. There has been several instances where boys or girls getting attracted to each other and impacted there studies. Others went into illegal relationship at very early age. This is true do we have any assurance that such acts will not happen if they study at separate school. The answer is no.
In conclusion, despite of some drawbacks and risk what a coeducation may have, can not defeat several advantages. Therefore in my opinion, I agree to the thought that coeducation is more beneficial for boys and girls.

Coeducation is also know is "mixed sex education" is the combination of both male students and female student in same place and environment. The trend is getting much popularity amongst the many countries of the world like Pakistan and India. Co education is a better system of education already very much common in the western world but now it is being adopted by almost all countries of the world. This system has many pros and cons based on the way it is being adopted, implemented and utilized in the educational institutions like schools, college and universities.
Here in this article I will debate on "is co-education is good or bad for our generation"?
Advantages of Co education System
In coed system males and females studies together they can better understand each other and greatly helps individuals to become used to of such environment where both male and females work together, so such individual can work more comfortably in mix environments. This mutual understanding prepares the students for that work environment in which they have to work shoulder to shoulder with the opposite sex.
Increase Confidence Level
It increases the confidence level of both males and females while they study with opposite gender. If it is being done in schools and colleges from the very initial level then it plays an important role in the grooming of the personality of both genders students. If a student not promoted to next class through coeducation system he/she feels hesitation when in work environment they are exposes to opposite sex for the every first time. So if such hesitation eliminated at very basic level then both the males and females get used to of working with each other in their upcoming careers.
When boys and girls both studied in same school, college the environment becomes very much controlled. This within the limits environment keeps both males and females students to behave properly, avoid misuse of language as well as unethical activities. So coeducation can plays an important role in altering the behavior of students as well as it also modifies the nature and respect for the both genders.
Disadvantages of Co education System
In the early stages of adulthood amateur school students concentration diverted from their studies and they usually involve themselves in other activities which actually results due to the attraction of the opposite sex. This potential risk might affect the educational career of the males and females students at very initial level which can make the foundations very weak.
Students usually get involve in unethical activities and sometime even involve in to crimes. These unethical activities at very young age of students may include the flirts, affairs, physical relationships and other serious crimes might include the sexual harassment and rape which might destroy the lives of the involved students.
Besides coeducation advantages and disadvantages, administration of institutes especially schools and colleges should have a tight check and balance system. This proper check and balance will result in better grooming of students and it will prevent the misuse of co-educational system then we can say the coeducation is a better system of education.
