Vocabulary Tricks Part 10: Co-education

Published on Saturday, February 04, 2017
Co-education is a system of imparting education to both boys and girls together. Coeducation reflects that there is no discrimination between boys and girls. It also develops a feeling of comradeship among them. In co-education schools, boys and girls intermingle.
As a result, enigmas and prejudices gradually vanish. Students shed inhibitions and develop harmonious relations. C0-education also helps in reducing gender bias. This system should be given precedence to wipe out male dominance.
However, some conservative people oppose the system. They feel that adolescents can go astray as they are of impressionable age.
