IELTS Writing Task 2: Mixed or Single-sex Schools
Task: Some people think that it is better to educate boys and girls in separate schools. Others, however, believe that boys and girls benefit more from attending mixed schools. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Education is important to every parents regardless their nationality or culture. In recent years, whether boys and girls should be educated separately became a contentious topic. Some people think it is positive to child if they attend different school, but I strongly believe that mixed school might be more suitable to their education.
I give my reasons as follows. First of all, dual-sex school is helpful to kids to know more about the opposite sex. They can understand the different of boy and girls, for example, girls always are calm but boys like more noise. It is very useful for them to know about this early, because they should know how to respect and interoperate with an opposite sex when they join social in future. Another reason is they can learn from each other if study in same school. Usually, girls are good and dancing and drawing, but boys are skilled at sports. They may get some beneficial help each other when taking part in public activities.
On the other hand, some people support that children should be in single-sex school. One of their excuse is this can avoid many negative disturbing, such as loving. It is always a sever issue to parents if their child fall in love too early, and it may influent their study very obviously. I cannot agree this reason because loving is always a barrier of education, if parents can guide and lead correctly, may it can be a nice motive of kids. As far as I know, the champion of Guangdong in this year’s college entrance examination was encouraged by his girlfriend to struggle for the top university of China when he was in senior high school.
Although I agree that there are both advantage and disadvantage of single-sex school but I personally believe dual-sex school is better for children’s education.
