"Separate school for boys and girls? That's absurd! Why would they need to be separated?" Most people would think this. The truth is, separate schools for boys and girls, is actually a good thing. This is why. First because boys and girls learn in different ways. Second because the opposite genders tend to distract each other. Third, because girls wouldn't have to deal with the rudeness of boys and, boys wouldn't have to deal with the bossy nature of girls. Finally because studies have been conducted on weather or not separate schools are a good thing. In my opinion separate schools might be a little crazy but, I believe it would be a good thing for both boys and girls.
First off, I think separate schools for boys and girls are a good thing is because girls and boys learn in different ways. This is a true statement, for it has been proven. Girls are more attentive learners. Boys are more of an "I want to make this cooler" kind of learners. Some people say that separate schools are a bad thing because the boys 'need' the girls to help them out. Well, in turn this slows the girl down a little bit because she is to busy helping the boy. Also the boy isn't really learning anything if he is just getting help and answers from a girl all the time. If they are separate, they won't have to rely on each other as much. It has also been proven; that the brains of boys and girls function differently. Another thing that has been proven is that most girls are genuinely smarter than boys. All in all; boys and girls just have different styles of doing what needs to be done. These learning differences can be very positive or very negative on the education of students. Someone once said "there are some things you and communicate unless you clash" This is the case in learning. If boys and girls were in separate schools, then the issues would be solved. The boys would work better with other boys, and the girls would work better with other girls. This is only a small reason as to why boys and girls should be separate.
Secondly, I think separate schools are a good idea is because of the distractions. We all know that the opposite genders tend to distract each other. For example if a boy sits next to a cute girl in class, he might get distracted by her and not pay attention. The same thing goes for girls. If they pass a handsome boy in the hall, they might start thinking about him, rather than their work. Some people claim that if they are separated then they will have a hard time talking to each other. This isn't true. It doesn't matter weather you're a boy or a girl. You're still a person. If I had never talked to a boy in my life, yeah I'd find it a little weird but I would still talk to them. We are all people and most of us speak the same languages. If we separated boys and girls, then we would subtract the Love life drama. The teachers wouldn't have to deal with girl fights or boy fights. They also wouldn't have to deal with love notes or things in that general area.
The next reason I think separate schools are a good idea, is because of attitude differences. Boys tend to be a little more rude and mean, not all boys though. Girls tend to be a little more sassy and, or, bossy. Again, not all girls are this way. I have experience with the boys and the girls. When I was in third grade I had a friend named Ivory. She was the sweetest girl ever. One day, we were walking in the hall and a boy pushed her down and threw her things. Then he walked away laughing about it. Ivory said to me "they really should have separate schools for boys and girls." The boy kept on being rude to us. Then he even got more boys to join up with him. This is why there needs to be separate schools. The girls tend to get bullied by mainly boys but sometimes other girls. When I was in fourth grade, I went to daycare after school. I had experience with a bossy girl there. Her name was Daisy. She would command kids to do what she wanted them to do; half the time she was younger than the kids she was commanding. One time she even yelled at a little boy. She told him to clean up her mess. The poor boy did not even know why she was yelling at him. This is why separate schools are a good idea. The boys and girls are rude to each other and that is not a good thing at all. If they were separate, sure there would still be a little bit of bullying, but it would be less violent.
The final reason I think separate schools are a good idea, is because studies have been conducted on the subject. I did a little bit of research online about these studies. One study confirmed that brains of boys and girls function differently. Another study said that girls work better when they are with their own gender. I also read a Teenbiz article in sixth grade. In the article the students themselves said that they work better with their own gender. I read about a girl who actually did better in a separated school. I also read about a boy who said he liked being away from girls. Another study I read about said that boys tend to be more focused when around other boys. These studies prove that separate schools are a good thing. I agree with the studies. There is evidence, and facts that show separate school are a good thing. Some people just refuse to accept the idea.
"What stages in school should the boys and girls be separated?" This is a commonly asked question. There is no right or wrong answer, but some are more reasonable. Personally, I think boys and girls should be separated from the time of third grade, to the time around eighth or ninth grade. If they are separated when they are young, it wouldn't make much sense. If they are separated when they are in high school, then collage would be a little weird. Middle school is definitely a good time to separate them. Boys and girls go through a lot of changes in that time. It would be good to separate them, so the changes don't cause trouble. My teacher said that she thinks boys and girls should be separated from around third grade, to around tenth grade.
In conclusion, I believe separate schools for boys and girls are a good thing. There are many reasons why. First, girls and boys learn in different ways. Second, because of the distractions' boys and girls create for each other. Next, it is good because of the attitude differences. Finally, separate schools are a good idea because there are studies that have been conducted. All in all, separate schools for boys and girls are a good idea in my opinion.
