After reading the article I disagree with the idea. The theory in the article tries to imply

that non co-ed classrooms provide a better learning environment for children. In

this case the children are majority elementary school children. This is where I must

differ. I honestley do not believe that at this age the distraction of the opposite sex

truley takes over a childs attention enough not to be able to get there work done. At

the age of 10 or 11, or whatever the case may be I do not remember myself just yet

interested in the opposite sex. Especially not in the classroom, the idea of "cooties" and

"girls belong on jupiter" where still very much alive in my head. So by seperating the

classrooms in an attempt to gain more attentive students I dont think is key. The

students might instead actually start to demonstrate more of a playful behavior

especially in the boy classrooms.
