Single-Sex Schools Hinder Students’ Social Development Name Instructor Course Title Date Single-Sex Schools Hinder Students’ Social Development 1.0. Introduction Students should attend mixed gender institutions for them to develop into completely socialized individuals. When children acquire the school going age, parents usually have to make various decisions regarding the school they would prefer their children to attend. Parents would always prefer a school that is well known for producing individuals well fitted for life in the society. Schools are socializing agents and parents would expect that other than their children acquiring the necessary skills for economic reasons, the children should also be well socialized.
They would benefit from being in a learning state where they don’t have to be inferior to the opposite sex in a specific subject because that is the stereotype. Also in “The Effects Of Single Gender Versus Coeducational Environments on the Self-Esteem Development and Academic Competence of High School Females” by Carol Langlois “ Peers can be a major influence on a child’s self-esteem especially during the critical period of adolescence called high school. “ Adolescent children always look at the people around them to know what to do in certain situations. If they are always around people that make the wrong choices or just the choices that they shouldn’t be making, how are they going to know what else to do? Maybe if adolescent children were in single sex gender schools or classes they would make better decisions or feel more comfortable in their learning environment or even in their lives.
One of the most popular debates amongst public schools today is whether or not students should be required to wear uniforms. While many schools have already established a policy mandating school uniforms, there are still many more schools who have not decided yet. Some say a mandatory uniform policy in public schools encourages more concentration on learning, while others say it hinders the creativity and individuality in students.

Students in grades kindergarten through twelve should be required to wear uniforms because it creates school unity, is safer, and it helps students develop a higher self-esteem.
Some parents choose between the two types of schools based upon them or their child’s decision. With children being educated in both schools, it has a negative impact and also a positive impact on them socially, academically, environmentally and so on. Many people believe that boys and girl should be educated separately on the whole while others believe that they should be both educated together. For starters, due to a survey taken in 2008 by the American Psychology Association, sixty percent of parents choose single sex schools for their child/children mainly for their child to improve academically. Most children in separate schools out do those in mixed schools academically mainly because there are fewer distractions.
This quality expressed by a single sex school has shown the main reason of going to school, which is to make good grades easily without much distraction in school Furthermore, mixed sex schools could bring about unwanted pregnancies that will put the education of a student into jeopardy. In mixed sex schools, when opposite sex student start befriending each other it could lead to unwanted pregnancies. A book called “INSIDE INDONESIA” writes about a high school

Pros and Cons of Coeducation One of the most important decisions a parent can make is where to send her child to school. Among the many decisions (which include school location versus offered programs, and public versus private), there is the choice of sending a child to a same-sex or co-ed school. Co-education is the most common type, but it has its advantages and disadvantages. CON: Females Study Better in All-Female Classes * Experts have shown that in many classes, especially in subjects that are considered to be "male domains" like engineering and math, teachers subconsciously give preferential treatment to male students. Female students might receive less attention or less encouragement, and therefore will be less likely to perform as well as the males; it may also force a girl student's attention towards the arts and humanities, even if her real interest lies in the sciences.
Speech arguing for or against school uniform? I believe that school uniform should be worn to some extent. Why? I think that the obvious reasons as to why school uniform should be worn is simply because it makes all student’s look smarter by providing pupils a sense of identity and pride in their schools and it is also believed that students perform academically better. The reason for this is because students will concentrate more on their studies then deciding what to wear in school.
When they are combined in a single classroom working beside each other, they acquire great skills and benefits more than they could have if they were distributed according to the gender. According to that, co-education schools is the best environment for university preparation where they will do the same thing that they learned in school but in a large scale.
