A system where boys and girls are taught, trained together in the same institution is called co-education. They sit in class and get education together.
Co-education helps to bring harmony in the classroom, and helps to understand each other’s problem. In Nepal, females population occupies nearly 50% of the total demographic. So, they should be treated equally to impart education.
Co-education is the symbol of equality where both sexes are treated without any discrimination. They are equally encouraged, as they together are important wheels of the society and such education helps to build confidence to each other.
It has some negative impact too. Sometimes girls and boys are attracted towards opposite sex in a young age. This is the time to build their career, but they think negatively, which harms them as well as their future.
Mostly, in urban areas, we can find co-education normal; but in rural villages, people are narrow minded, as they think that daughters have to go to their husband's home after marriage. So they don't send their daughters to school. The villages where co-education are available, both sons and daughters are treated equally and given education without any discrimination.
In spite of these problem, co-education should be encouraged to impart education, to understand each other, as well as to advocate gender equality, progress, and for women empowerment.
