The concept of Co-Ed has been there for many years now. Not only the western countries but also countries like India has many which have boys and girls sharing the classrooms. People have opinions about the same. Let’s have a look at the pros and cons of this approach.
Co-Ed school schools are the best place for a child to learn not only academic but also to learn to communicate with the opposite sex. This helps them in work cultures where they daily have to face colleagues and bosses or impersonator. Secondly, when children interact with opposite sexes, they learn not only to respect each other but also to understand each other’s problems. These values help them, in the long run, a lot. Let’s take my friend Ram as an example. He has been the team lead for our project, and he has a team comprising both sexes under him. As he is from a Co-Ed school, he exactly knows how to speak and behave with opposite sexes. He not only understands their problems and makes them feel comfortable but also does not do say anything that offends them.
Many people believe a high vote of eve-teasing students reputed in Co-Ed schools, which does more harm not only physically but also mentally to the female victim. Eve teasing, serious offence and looking at this activity with strict policies and rules is the job of the school staff. Not only the school staff and management look into it but also the parents should guide the culprits involved in such activities. To add to it, girls who go through such torment should be helped by the entities like the school management, staff, friends and above all family so that she can fight it out herself making them more robust so that when she steps into the real world, she would not need any help from others to fight in similar scenarios. Also, she could be a messiah to others in need.
Looking back, Co-Ed schools help build a suitable individual for our society by not only making them comfortable with the opposite sexes in day to day life but also teaches them to respect and understand each others’ problems. There could be incidents of eve-teasing in Co-Ed schools, but it’s the responsibility of the school and family to stand by the victim firmly against such crimes. In my opinion, Co-Ed schools will do more good than harm to the children of our society.

Co-Ed school schools are the best place for a child to learn not only academic but also to learn to communicate with the opposite sex. This helps them in work cultures where they, daily, have to face colleagues and bosses or impersonator.
In the past, gender-based schools were common; however, nowadays, most schools accept both genders. Looking at this trend, one must analyse whether separate institutions for boys and girls are better than the co-ed schools. In my view, the latter option is superior.
There are many reasons why mixed schools bode well for society. Firstly, the students learn to communicate with the opposite sex without hesitation by working with them on class assignments or participating in other school activities. As a result, they may develop an understanding of each other’s problems. Secondly, when these individuals graduate and start working in the real world, they can cooperate as they know their differences and subsequent solutions. So, the mixed-gender teams at the workplace can function successfully. For example, co-education helps me immensely while handling the six-member team in the office. I can understand the problems of both the genders and encourage them to work together despite their differences.
On the other hand, some with traditional views may advocate separate schools. They may argue that especially teenagers undergoing physical transformation do not get distracted from their studies when they are enrolled in different schools. However, it is noted that children who do not interact with the opposite sex are more curious about the other gender. Thus, it is observed that such students may take extreme measures to communicate with others leading to incidents such as eve-teasing girls in schools or colleges. For examples, according to crime records in India, petty crimes like teasing girls or ragging is common in all states where separate schools are prevalent even today.
Looking back, mixed schools ensure healthy relations between the opposite genders that can help in their lifetimes. Although gender-based schools may allow students to concentrate on their studies, they fail to teach them how to respect others. So, I believe that co-education is healthy for society.
