There is long standing debate about whether coeducation is better than the separate school for boys and girls or not. In my opinion, it is better for the boys and girls both to study in the same school rather than joining the different schools for their study. I feel this way for the two main reasons, which I explore in the following paragraphs.
Firstly, I think boys and girls are the two wheels of the same cart. They both need each other to run their life. By the way, they should spend their life with love, affection, cooperation and mutual caring. Then why to prevent them to become habitual to these things by favoring the coeducation? They will understand each other even from the young age. They share their common feelings ans interests. It would be a opportunity for boys to know about interests, characters and behaviors of girls and the same in case of girls. The mutual understandings between them would make their future life easier.
Secondly, boys and girl can learn many things from each other. Girls have many good behaviors like politeness, suave, polished manner, discipline etc. and boys can imitate these good things from girls. Also boys have many good manners like courage, hard working etc, which can become motivation for girls to become brave and hard working.
Last but not least, students feel boring and monotonous if there is separate school for the boys and girls. We already know there always exists some type of attraction between the opposite sex. That is why, having the friends of the same sex is really boring for them. In campus and schools, there would be a lot of fun and excitements if one have a group of friends which includes boys as well as girls.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that boys and girls both should attend the same school. That means I disagree with the statement that they should attend the separate schools. This is because they need mutual understandings between each other and also because there is a lot to learn from each other. Moreover, there should be lot of fun and excitement in school which is achieved only if boys and girls are together.
