Change For The Worse
Christmas without a tree, St. Patrick’s Day without the green, Valentines Day without the love; changing customs and traditions is a near attempt to improve what never needs to be changed. In America, changing and upgrading is the standard and almost obsessive like, and people rarely seem satisfied. In school, boys and girls need to be in classes together so they learn to interact socially in different areas from friendships,
to the relationship of girlfriend and boyfriend, in addition to gaining perspective on the different thought processes and learning styles of each gender.
In every teenagers life there comes a point when we cannot hide from the realities and conflicts of the real world. With the sexes being separated in different classes, girls and boys will not build the appropriate interaction skills with each other. School is made to learn and one skill needed to learn is how to interact with the opposite sex. Boys and girls need to communicate with one another and if they cannot learn that skill in school, they will have trouble later in life. Many people may argue kids will learn this skill out side of school and in extra curricular activities. This is true to an extent, but only in class can students interact in a working and focused environment that will be similar to the work world. Also, classes take up nearly five hours a day, which can most likely not be made up outside of school. Girls and boys need to be in classes together to develop the interaction skills needed later in life.
While it is true being in classes together is beneficial later in life, it is also true it is beneficial during the school years. Middle school and high school students need attention from the other sex and when they cannot receive it, they will have greedier, unhealthy temptations. Taking away five hours of attention from each other will increase needs and lead to inappropriate play outside of school....
