Single-Sex School’s Benefits

Single-sex school’s benefits In some countries single-sex schools is not provided and against the law. In 2002, only a dozen schools were separating sexes and this research is according to the National Association for Single Sex Public Education. Many parents believe that placing their child in single-sex schools give them sexual freedom. Students in single-sex school benefit more than those in co-education. It improves the behaviour, performance of the students, although boys and girls have different styles of learning. Most of the people agree on that the behavior of students differs.

In co-education schools grades are equally for both genders. Indicting that neither gender is disadvantaged by the other, in fact the reverse is true. Sex segregation increases gender divisions among children. “Separating boys and girls in public school classrooms makes gender very salient, and this salience reinforces stereotypes and sexism,” Fabes said. In the other hand, according to Vail, “By far, the advantages most often associated with schooling boys and girls separately is that eliminates distraction. Freed from the worries of impressing the opposite sex, boys and girls can focus on their books” (vail, 2002, p. 5). Moreover, in coeducational settings, the culture is one of socialization where for some academics might not be a priority. For these individuals, single-sex classes or single-sex schools might be a better choice. “Single-sex school officials say test scores and attendance rise and attitude improve” (Vail, 2002, p. 33). An experiment take place at Matthew Henson Elmentray School, Dunkel reports that if the disciplinary problems decrease, the attendance will increase and the academic performance will improve and positive attitudes will appear.

By providing single-sex schools which decrease the disciplinary problems, the students will have the maximum achievement. Students have different styles of learning. Co-education interacts between boys and girls that sum up all the styles which are better. According to professor Alan Smithers, There are no overriding advantages for single-sex schools on educational grounds. Studies all over the world have failed to detect any major differences. ‘Studies show that here is difference in children’s brains beyond the larger volume of boy’s brains and the earlier completion of girl’s brain growth, which have nothing related to learning. However, Boys and girls have different styles, according to Leonard Sax which says “The kind of learning environment that is best for boys is not necessarily best for girls” (Vail, 2002, P. 36). Scientist thinks that in co-education school require different teaching techniques at different time” (Howley , 1994) . These different teaching techniques will decrease the performance of students.

Boys have a weird ways in concentration, such that boys tend to use a lot of space. So if boy and girl share a table the boy might take a big room by spreading his papers over the entire table which leave little room for the girl, as Gurian and Ballew stated, “This tendency can affect psychosocial dynamics” (2003, p. 18). There is another environmental learning-style difference is collaborative learning. Girls seem to benefit from this collaborative learning style than boys as Gollnick and Chinn stated, “, “Girls are more likely to learn in cooperative mathematics activities…” (2004 , p. 152).

But in the other hand, boys do not benefit from this learning and style instead they might can not collaborative easy with girls. Many people believe that sex segregation decrease the performance of the students. Richard Fabes, PH. D, one of the authors of the Science article said “Though public sentiment may have strengthened in support of such setting for improving the learning environment and outcomes for both boys and girls, the science is just not there to support this”. However, Supporters of single-sex school are totally against what Richard Fabes said. They believe that single-sex schools increase performance.

Teachers of single-sex schools do not have to teach a lot of different styles, they just can concentrate on only one teaching style which will help the students a lot to understand easily. Moreover, the concentration of students and participation will increase a lot. Distraction between students will decline. There is assumption here that boys and girls should learn about each other in school. But is the main goal of school is to develop students socially? The assumption is false; other, there are a lot of another ways to develop socially through family, neighbourhood and clubs.

Finally, single-sex school students behaviour is much better than co-education schools students because the distraction vanish, attendance rise and positive attitudes will occur. Most of the people agree on that boys and girls have different styles which decrease there performance. There is kind of learning which is good for boys and not good for girls. Each sex cooperates with each other better than cooperating with the opposite sex. Moreover, single-sex schools help the students to participate more than in co-education schools.

So every country should provide a choice to parents to have single-sex education along with co-education.
