Shame I was born 30 years too early. School could have been a lot more fun in the 80s for us poor lads.....
I was thinking the same thing Shakey!
On a serious note I do agree with this bit of the article:
"Boys in single-sex school tend to create their own artificial hierarchies where only those in the first-15 rugby team are truly valued, while girls-only schools sometimes suffer a degree of emotional intensity that can lead to bullying.
"Contrast that with a co-educational world where girls admire the boys who dance, sing or act, and so, therefore, do the boys. Contrast that too with a mixed environment where the emotional intensity of all girls is diluted by the boys.
"In other words, there is a place for everyone and an environment where girls and boys can be themselves."
Speaking from personal experience my maturity and social skills at age 18, particularly with girls, was quite limited, and I put that down primarily to having attended an all boys secondary school. Personally I think its unnatural and unhealthy to segregate people on the basis of sex, race, religion or anything else particularly during the most important years of someones emotional and social development.
