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!


exactly! all i'm saying is that distraction or not, how can different point of view and opinions be expressed by just one gender. plus people and ideas would be hard to integrate together if they were separated in the first place...


ollie_pBut it is nice that you wanted to talk about it rhynny!

i thought people would have an opinion on it seeing as most of us here are still in the process of educating ourselves. besides wheni saw that article i was horrified out of my mind!

Well i have been in a mixed school my whole life but my cousin's havent... and they are perverts cause they never learned how to act around girls and well arent used to them. I know its probably not the same for every case but thats just one of the example of why i think one-sex schools are not a good idea. Besides, world is made of guys and girls so you cant like block it from the children thats stupid.

Uhm...I don't know. I would rather go to a co-ed school because it gets us ready for life. Life isn't only one gender. ><;; And...the hormone thing is hard to control for teenagers, it might increase their chances for homosexuality, not that I'm saying I have anything against them..I'm just stating.

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.



i think you may want to read Eros' link. its very personal. and i agree with most of it. my self-esteem and my image suffered when i went back to coed after 4 years in a unisex school. it became so bad i basically isolated myself from everyone aside from my family. http://www.nd.edu/~frswrite/issues/1998-1999/sp99/Keating.shtml
