Co-education basically refers to providing education to both girls and boys together, without any discrimination (specifically gender discrimination). This is the actual meaning of co-education explained in simple terms. Observation method is being used. Co-education provides an opportunity for the opposite genders to get to understand each other’s nature. The understanding developed in early age helps them in their practical married lives. We’ve long recognised that women and men work alongside each other more effectively in partnership across all areas of the socio-political landscape, rather than segregated from each other. Co-education is a more natural reflection of society; our schools better reflect the diversity of our culture. Coeducational schools reflect the world that our young men and women will live in so in this case Co-education is good for student and it should be supported continually in all part of the world.
