System of teaching boys and girls together is known as coeducation system. The main economic benefit is that separate real estate is not required. Nation saves by way of economizing on real estate, buildings, infrastructure, and employment of the teaching staff. Second most important need to secure equality for women in industrial, professional, and political activities is met with and fulfilled. Most of the very old gender-specific colleges have become coeducational now. Only a few historic women's schools and men's seminaries, remain. However some communities oppose coeducation on basis of their religious and cultural grounds.
Coeducation is good not simply on academic grounds but on sexual grounds as well. The gender–specific schools create an undue curiosity among students about opposite sexes. This leads to their indulgence in immature sex acts and some times many crimes. In my opinion the segregation of young men and women leads to an undue preoccupation of students with sex that is a very big hurdle in their way to studies. Nevertheless coeducation creates a more natural and healthier atmosphere for studies. Students should have the healthy, moral and intellectual cognition with respect to sex and without any undue excitement about the novelty that predominantly prevails in the system of isolation. Coeducation, promises intellectual growth and sexual well-being.
Summing up, it is better to have coeducation instead of conventional old system of teaching boys and girls in separate gender-specific schools. (268 Words)
