Although I agree co-ed schools teach communication and skills with other opposite gender, I think the choice is good. Some people might not be comfortable in the co-ed environment while in school, or focus better and feel they achieve more when they're surrounded by peers they can relate more to. I for one have always wanted to go to an all girl's school. One with uniforms, but that's a completely separate topic. It's not that I don't like boys, I really, really do, and that's the problem. I learned nothing in science because I was turned around talking to Conor in the back row all semester -_-

Though I would prefer a single sex school I think it's good that there's the choice. There are private schools that are co-ed, though I'm not sure of single sex public schools. So essentially, no, I don't think single sex schools should be shut down.

If it's a private school, they have the right to be only for one gender. I personally don't think it makes sense for a school to be single gender, but...

I just had a shower and thought about rewriting what I wrote...

Here it is anyways. I think single sex schools are stupid, and just a way for over protective parents to waste their money. Kids need to learn to interact with the opposite sex to survive in life.

I don't see a reason why these schools should be around, and I couldn't give a shit if they were closed or not.

My opinion

I'm against single-sex schools... and unless someone proves to me why segragating people based on their gender is a good thing I will keep being against them. Educational opportunities should be given equaly to people of both genders anyway and single-sex schools only help to increase gender prejudices IMO by alienating children from children of the opposite sex in an enviroment not at all reminiscent to the real society


These two said what i had in mind!

I go to a girls school and I have to say it is probably a better academic environment. Although that depends on the person I guess. But socially they're not so great. I'm pretty sure it's had some sort of negative effect on me.
I don't know if anything is proven about whether single-sex schools are truely a better environment, academically speaking. but it most likely makes a difference, and if parents want to send their kids there because of that then it's fine. they may not be fantastic but no need to abolish them.

or have I been brainwashed? :P

You mean those overly protective, prudes that are terrorized by the thought that their precious child will *gasp* talk... to somebody of the opposite gender... and then fall in love and perhaps even k-k-k-k-kiss someone and stuff... oh boy the terror...

You obviously have been... but still I'm happy you finally did me the honour of participating in one of my polls. :P

Yes. Them. It is the parents choice where to send their kid. And I don't think that's the reason parents send their kids to single-sex schools. At least it wasn't my parents' motive.

What. IDK how sarcastic you're being here, but if a parent was that worried they would home school their kids.

Plus:
- There's no rule that says students only date students from their school. Plenty of towns have multiple schools all less than a few minutes from each other.
- If you go to a co-ed school your parents can still be overprotective about dating. Sure you can see your boyfriend/girlfriend at school if it was co-ed but school isn't suppose to be some match-making place. You're suppose to study and learn there.
- Some people really do learn better when they aren't around the opposite gender. This doesn't prepare them for the real world - except that:
1) The real world is not like high school anyway.
2) Hormones make things worse for young adults; they'll get over that eventually.
3) Learning to have a social life outside of school is a good thing. Do you plan on hanging out with your co-workers all the time when you get older?

I was totally and completely sarcastic obviously... but home schooling isn't as convenient as sending their kids off... and I suspect not as cheap either... though calling some private schools cheap with the prices they demand takes a lot of nerve... ;)

Well, if I was an over-protective parent I would do a good job it. Start young with putting a leash on them whenever we leave the house, monitor what they read/watch, put tracking devices in all their stuff... I mean if you're going to do something, might as well go all out.

I came from an exclusive school - no problem whatsoever in most areas, especially academics. Exclusive schools here are private schools and have a higher standard of academics. Public schools are co-eds and suffer from an appalling lack of funds. Students from public schools have lower average grade score nationwide than those in private schools. That is the main reason I was enrolled in one. Plus you get a foot inside those toney universities which I did get into.

I know it's total BS to say those that who go to an exclusive school suffer socially than those in co-ed. In here, the best and the brightest comes from these particular schools.

I think people should get along with both genders when they're young, but it's not like people from a single-gender school are per say anti social. Loads of reasons to back up both :(. I would never go to an all mens school though. I just like it simple and be around with both, but that's what I'm used to I guess.

I think this is the only topic so far where I've disagreed with you, alas.
I see no reason to abolish them. As someone already pointed out, such schools almost always have sister schools for the opposite gender, so it's not like anyone is being denied an opportunity. And besides, private religious schools are allowed to deny people of other faiths, so why can't other private schools deny people because of gender?
