I wouldnt send my children to a same sex school.
While i have heard of the two sexes doing better in their studies if seperated , I have also heard of some having sex releated issues. I dont mean gay or whatever but some do find it hard to iinteract with the other sex, while others go hell for leather to make up for lost time.
Also , not exactly same topic , but not far , I wont be sending my child to a Public school either. I have experienced both public and private and a local catholic school is my preffered choice. This may ruffle a few feathers but the public schools i have been to are nothing short of ****ed!
There was a feature article about this issue in one of the Sunday papers last weekend. The opinions of students weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢re gathered and it made for interesting reading.
For me, it has to be co-ed. Schools play a huge role in social development and the other posters in the thread have just about hit all the key issues. I also doubt that interaction with the opposite sex would have a more negative effect on academic performance. I went to a single sex school and the boys I knew wrestled with each other and sat around to watch Neighbours (most for the glamours, haha) in groups. There are distractions both ways.
And youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ve got to spare the female teachers. There were countless discussions about which teacher we wanted to root.
