Is Single Sex Education Better

I believe that same sex education is the better choice for the education of the youth of today. Since students are the potential of the future economy, it is our responsibility to provide them with best that we can. Same sex education can help, and can help a lot.

Boys and girls learn in different ways, as well as work the best in different ways. Boys and girls also act in different ways. One gender may not be able to benefit as much in a co-ed classroom, and for example, the girls. Girls have big differences from boys, especially at a young age. No offence to the boys, but boys tend to take up time and space. Boys also mature later than girls. Often, it is the girls that suffer from teaching techniques that are rounded out to teach both boys and girls. Statistics show that boys working with girls do not help the boys improve, but the pairing does not benefit the girls. Problems in a co-ed classroom occur often because of these differences. Teachers can teach in situations where there are learning differences, but the process is often slower and unclear to the student because there are ways of teaching that can benefit girls but not boys. Or vice versa. Why not let the teacher teach a group of students of the same gender that all learn and behave in similar ways? Then, the teacher can stick to the method of teaching that appeals to the entire class rather than teach the students using a method that is supposed to be for both boys and girls, but does not give the information as clearly for one gender, or maybe both.

Emotional activity in a boy¡¦s brain happens in a different area than in a girls¡¦ brain. So teaching would have to work slightly differently for both genders, because studies find that boys¡¦ performance dropped by around 40% with a sweet honeyed teacher, and rose by about 45% with a stricter teacher. For girls, however, it is the other way around. Girls cannot learn properly with a strict teacher.
