People should have the option. Some people are more comfortable in boys only or girls only school and some people are not. Having a choice is important.



Having boys and girls attend separate schools is often called "Gender Apartheid".


People support such gender segregation in schools for reasons that include religious belief, social propriety, morality, convenience and protection.

The whole crux of the matter is that many people believe that boys and girls are different and require specific facilities and teaching methods proper to their sex.
Many religions teach, or at least used to teach, that boys and girls should not be attending school together, especially during adolescence when children are curious and not yet disciplined in the mind and body. They fear that children will be in an occasion of sin when in such intimate quarters for hours at a time with members of the opposite sex. They wish to avoid such a situation until children are mature and ready for such involvement in legitimate circumstances. Separating them also helps to keep their minds on studies instead of each other, at least in the classroom. Religious arguments, therefore, insist that separating the sexes maintains decency, sacredness, modesty, female safety and promotes the family unit in the school as well as giving each gender a role model to emulate, for instance, the boys are usually taught by males, sometimes priests and brothers, and the girls by females, sometimes nuns and sisters.

Much of society's moral code and sense of propriety has been influenced by religion. Some, however, insist that besides religion there is a natural decency that must be respected. They consider that mixing genders in school would violate this natural decency. Their views are very much like the above and they too may cite gender roles and proper relations as reasons to keep the teachers the same sex as the students. It is also more convenient to sometimes provide one set of facilities rather than two in a teaching institution. Many schools used to be tailored to a specific sex in order to provide classes for established gender roles in society, such as homemaking for girls and manual skills for boys. In modern times such gender stereotyping is looked upon with disfavor though some people continue to defend the idea.
