Some people say that the best way to improve public health is by increasing the number of sports facilities. Others, however, say that this would have little effect on public health and that other measures are required. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
It would be argued by some that It is more beneficial to send students to single – sex schools. In my opinion, however, they should enter mixed – gender education.
On the one hand, the primary reason why some people think that students should study in single gender school. The first reason is when boys and girls are taught separately, there is little chance for early relationships. Without worrying about these distractions, students might be able to concentrate more on their study, and therefore, might get higher academic results than those at co-ed schools. Another reason is boys and girls have different learning needs. Therefore, it is better for them to be taught separately as single – sex schools offer teaching styles, subject choices and learning programmes that are entirely focused on either boys or girls.
On the other hand, I would argue that it would be better for students to enter mixed gender education. Firstly, students studying in co-ed schools have opportunity to interact and take part in group work activities with opposite-sex classmates. This may help them learn a wide range of skills such as communication or teamwork which are necessary for their later jobs. Secondly, co-ed schools teach them about co-existence and gender equality. This is because male and female students are given the chance to explore each other’s perspectives , their similarities and differences.
In conclusion, although some people think that student should be sent to single – sex schools, I personally believe that mixed – gender education brings more benefits for students.
