Reasons for this are: students are more distracted and lack focus, boys and girls develop sexual stereotypes, their learning abilities are different, and single sex classrooms cause boys to be very problematic. Are your children really being successful in single-sex classrooms? Studies show that both boys and girls can both benefit from an instructional mix that includes cooperation, and hands on learning with each other (“Gender Segregation in Schools isn’t the Answer” 1).

Before you turn down the idea, because god forbid you go a few hours without seeing a cute boy take a moment to learn about all the benefits same sex schooling can provide. Most students are against same sex schools. They want to flirt with the cute guy in math or ask the shy girl in history for a pencil even if they already one. Same sex classrooms provide a multitude of benefits, because they promote better behavior, higher grades, improved self-esteem, and are able to cater to student’s needs. Same sex classes make it possible for teachers to cater to student needs in a more efficient way.
Students are more focused and therefore have better test scores in single-sex classrooms. Although stereotypes are formed because of separating genders, a study in the 2009 British Educational Research Journal concluded that in single-sex classrooms, girls achieve more in math and science while boys achieve more in English (Kwong). Stereotypes have been developed early on of what girls and boys are more proficient at. Naturally girls are better at English; boys, math and science (compound sentence: elliptical construction). Single-sex classes encourage girls to pursue more in science and math and boys in English because it takes away gender stereotypes.
Base on the three aspects, people have discussed the learning facts of boys and girls in different educations stages.

In contrast, girls are good at their native language and reading. In secondary education, boys are more motivate by competition than girls (Driessen, Langen, 2013).
Like who has the better phone or who has the nicer uniform. Bullies would make fun of the kids who had to buy a used uniform because the kids didn’t have enough money. This is also where fighting would still be a problem with uniforms in school. The kids with the nicest things will pick on the kids who are less fortunate, and then they will fight about it. Peer pressure might not be as big of problem, but drugs and alcohol still are around, and kids still do them even if they have a uniform on or not.

Since students are getting better grades when separated, there are more schools changing to single sex (Sax). This information isn’t saying that it is the best method of learning for all students, but instead a majority of them. Works Cited Chadwell, David. "Membership." New Voices.
