No one can deny that the education of our children should be one of our top priorities. However, there is often a question whether separate classes or mixed classes are better for our boys and girls. Below I will try to answer this question.
Placing your child in a separate school, where there are only children with the same gender, has, undoubtedly, some advantages. Our child would be more focused on learning than on the opposite sex, which is particularly important in that age. Moreover, the possibility of violent behaviours, connected with sex, is also less. Therefore it is better for the teachers to control such a class, as they know what they can expect.
On the other hand, youngsters will lose an opportunity to create relationships with boys or girls and it may affect their lives in the future. Although mixed schools have some disadvantages and they are sometimes perceived as a source of aggression among the youth, I think that they prepare children better for a life in a modern society which, nowadays, is full of mixed environments. Our boy can have a boss who is a girl, for instance, thus he will be better prepared having a possibility to interact with another gender before.
In conclusion, I have more trust in mixed schools as, in my opinion, they learn children how to behave in the modern society which will help them in their mature lives. In the end, every parent wants the best for their children so I hope that they will choose the best option. ***What do you think of this IELTS essay on educating boys and girls separately or together?

Mixed Schools versus Separate Schools

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.***You can post your comments on this essay below.
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.
