Until twenty years ago, coeducational schools were not common in my country. The modernization of our educational system means that now more boys and girls are going to school together. Attending a coed school has both advantages and disadvantages.
Coeducational schools have several important benefits. For one thing, students at these schools are better prepared for life after graduation. In the working world, we interact every day with both men and women, as supervisors, colleagues, and customers. Furthermore, diversity inside a school is very positive, not just as a preparation for work. There is much to be learned from contact with members of the appositive sex, because they may act and think differently from ourselves. All students, male and female, have access to the same teachers, courses, and opportunities.
Of course, there are also disadvantages of boys and girls studying together. Teachers and parents say that students are distracted by the presence of the opposite sex in the classroom. This can make it more difficult to concentrate on studying. A more serious problem with coed schools is that they can build stereotypes. Boys may not want to study art or music when girls are there, and girls may feel pressure to keep quiet in science classes.

In my opinion, though, the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. Coeducational schools better prepare young people for the future, and at the same time, allow them to have a more enjoyable social life.
