Co-education Essay with Quotations for Class 12
Co-education means the education of boys and girls together. In recent years, some of our colleges have adopted this system. Some people favour this system. They say that this system is very useful. Their main argument is that in a poor and backward country like Pakistan it is impossible to maintain separate institutions. So co-education would be adopted and the existing colleges and schools should also be opened to girls.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela)
The supporters of co-education also say that this system would provide an opportunity for young men and women to come closer and to understand each other. This would be very useful to them in their future life. It would also be good for the progress of the country. Another argument is that co-education would raise the standard of education because it will promote competition among boys and girls.
“There is here, as in all countries, advantages and disadvantages.” (Nathaniel Smith)
But all these arguments are not based on facts. All of our institutions are overcrowded. The girl’s schools and colleges too are overcrowded. Hundreds of new educational institutions are needed. If some of these are reserved for girls, it would not cost more to the government.
The second argument too is false. If young men and women cannot understand each other at home, they would not be able to do so in colleges.
“Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.” (John Dewey)
The system of co-education will not raise educational standards. Temptation of flirting is stronger than the urge of reading textbooks. Co-education will create many problems and complications not only for the students but also for the teachers. Temptation does not distinguish between the students and the teachers.
“To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.” (Theodore Roosevelt)
The real reason why some people support co-education is that they like the western culture, they want to be more English than the English. Because the West has co-education, they must have it too. But we have to consider whether our religion, our culture and our circumstances allow us to adopt co-education. Certainly not. Our young men and women need education and not co-education. We must understand that co-education may demolish our education system as well as our culture. It may cause many social evils and complications not only for the students but for their parents too.
