well i dont really care about same sex schools or combined it is all the same you still go to learn and that is the whole point of school in all accuality(sp) we are lucky we are not sepperated and have all the benifits in school that we have right now even if you dont think you dont have any it can always be worse remember


and besides your job is to study and get good grades not hangout with friends you can do that in your free time


yes, but what about the quality of subjects. yes we learn something but if its all gender-separated, educators wont be able to resist making gender-orientated subjects (it's probably going to be easier for them) which would slowly make the gender divide more apparent when everyone's hunting for the same jobs.

I've always been in an unisex school. I think it was ok for primary school, but when we got to comprehensive I, and many others, with instantly singled out as being 'frigid' in a way, even though we weren't. There was immense pressure on all of us by people in our own year, and the years above, to find a boyfriend/girlfriend, because if you had a boyfriend/girlfriend, no matter who they were, you would instantly become popular and known throughtout the school. It was for that reason that a lot of us were bullied, or stayed in our classrooms for the first 3 years of comprehensive. Because the other gender was there, we were distracted from our work, and forced to be anti-social, and a lot of people in my year, and throughout the school has some sort of mental disorder or another [anarexia, bulima, depression, SI] and they appeared because there's a social view of 'perfection' in society and schools, and if you're perfect you get a boyfriend/girlfriend.

A very large amount of people in my school year are either bisexual or homosexual, and probably throughout the entire school. I don't think that same-sex schools will have that much of an affect in our modern society.

I am for Same-Sex schools, but not compulsory. It is the choice of the parents and the child as to what school they'd like to go. Having unisex primary schools is a good, and then having same-sex comprehensive for those who'd want it.

imo we do. thats why everyone takes a huge range of subjects in highschool, its to make us aware of what we're good or bad at, it helps us make decisions about what we want to do at university. take me for example, because of highschool i knew i would never be artistic, athletic, mathematically inclined, scinetifically minded. i was only good at writing, understanding and evaluating. i wouldnt have known that if i hadnt taken english language/literature.

^no
i am what you would consider a "nerd" only because i go to a magnet school (advanced/accelerated school). but really i am too lazy to be a nerd and am somewhat of a "jock" not the ass hole type ie the stereotypical jock but i plays sports and i do good in school. i am actually a floater between cool kid and "nerd". i am friends with basically everyone. my closer friends like anime and my good friends like music and shouting random phrases and names...like "charliemurphy" or "surprise" (we say it fast and with a deep voice or with a stupid sounding voice...it sounds dumb and it is but its funny). we are all good at math though (i go to the Science and Mathematics Academy)

oh yeah to stay on topic i...have no opinion lol. i just dont want to go to an all guys school is all.

i'm paranoid, sypris, i have this horrifying image of a roomfull of little women sewing while the men fights the war. when i was in that all-girls school home-economics was compulsory ( i despised it). the subjects we were allowed to choose from consisted of languages, art, theology and a handful of masculine subjects like business and european studies (needless to say i took the european studies subject). granted most subjects now are mainly unisex but if in an all-girls school not enough girls take an interest in law for example they're gonna scrap it. economically it's not wise to leave an option that only 2-6 people would takeinterest in. its slowly gonna evolve until the subjects become feminised. i may just be dreaming but thats what i think.

Snort, promote "diversity"? How silly is that? Riddle me this batman, how on earth do you promote diversity without being diverse? I almost fell off my chair when I read that! In my humble opinion, I have gotten into some of the best arguments/debates on everything from health care to North vs South with a guy who was in the same class as me for three years. Most of the girls in my class were older than me at the time, and Latin would have become one of the circles of hell had we not been a coed class.

But living in the US, and having a child here, I don't think that I would want my son to grow up with out all of those great milestones of relating to the opposite sex. Not necessarily because I am afraid that he will be gay, or bisexual, or confused, but because what is childhood without pushing your favorite girl/boy in the dirt? Or having your first crush?

I feel that it is wishful thinking that it will solve the problem of distration in school. Be it male/female, or by race, it has never done the US any good to promote separation at that magnitude. Hopefully by the time every one else becomes parents they will have a firmer understanding about how they feel on this topic. But it is nice that you wanted to talk about it rhynny!
