    My sister is a school nurse, and she believes that single gender education is very beneficial after the 5th grade. When students get to the puberty years, students of the opposite sex in the classroom are a big distraction to effective education. The only exception might be advanced science and mathematics classes where there might not be enough student for two separate classes. In this case, the boys and girls should sit on opposite sides of the classroom.

    This sounds pretty extreme, but she has been observing students for many years, before she developed this theory.

    I was educated at a mixed school and, to be honest, from the ages of 13 to 16 (and beyond) girls were a distraction from education. I think I might have benefited more academically from an male environment. I had friends, male and female, who attended single sex schools. Some of my friends who had been educated in a single-sex environment seemed maladjusted by the time they attended university and seemed to have some problems relating to members of the opposite sex.

    I can see the potential academic benefits of education gender segregation particularly during puberty. However, separating boys and girls might result in subsequent relationship problems. Just a thought.

    I'd favor it, because the schools are places for study, not hooking up and crushes. I can remember how much energy was wasted on that in my gymnasium and high school. Because the priority preoccupation of girls was to find a cool boyfriend and send little love notes to each other or even kiss in the last desk during class.

    Although I see the benefit in single-sex education, there are some serious exceptions, such as myself. I never found boys to be a distraction for me, as I did not daydream about crushes. I liked to focus on schoolwork, and what was truly distracting me was other girls with their petty bickering over cliques and fashion. Were in not for boys in my school, I would have had nobody to talk to about classes and homework, and I definitely would not have had any friends. I am an extreme example, and this is most likely because I grew up with four older brothers, but such examples must be accounted for in some small way.

    However, it is usually the case that during puberty, boys and girls are very distracted by the opposite sex, and could most likely get along better with their schooling if they were separated. I see how this could lead to maladjustment, but school is not meant to be a social event; it is for learning. There is plenty of time outside of school to be social, and that is when socializing should be done.

    Boys aren't always a distraction.
    I'm see the benefits of single-sex education,
    but sooner or later you have to interact,
    with the opposite sex.

    I don't agree. Why? Because boys were my best friends in Secondary school and Primary school.
    I hated the girls in my school simply because they were so bitchy and girly, I could never fit in. But I had the boys to hang out with. They were nicer to me than the girls and I can honestly say, I fit in better with the boys than I did with the girls. I always have done, and I always will.
