Round 1

The third point is about sexism in schools. Some students might discriminate against other students for their gender.
Sexism is gender-based prejudice or discrimination. Other forms of prejudice and discrimination, For example, it functions to maintain status and power differences between groups in school. One manifestation of sexism involves prejudice and discrimination against girls and women who want to achieve a respected field traditionally associated with males but don’t knowhow to properly interact with them. Another manifestation of sexism, however, occurs when pressure is placed on boys and men to conform to traditional conceptions of males. Sexism is seen through gender-stereotyped biases against girls and boys in athletic and academic achievement. Also, it also happens through sexual harassment in social interactions.
For example, having the same gender in school distract students to achieve academically.
Last thing, single-sex schools promote a bias between boys and girls. For example, male teachers like to teach male students.
Round 2
Pro
In Saudi Arabia, teachers only know how to teach their own gender, which means male teachers only teach male students and female teachers only teach female students. So what is my opinion about this? I personally think that that we still haven't evolved enough to be able to fully interact with the other gender. By that I mean a country like Saudi Arabia is evolving but it didn't reach the point where we could have mixed schools. Some parents don't want their children to be in mixed-gender classrooms because, especially at certain ages, students of the opposite sex can be a distraction. Also some research indicates that girls learn better when classroom temperature is warm, while boys perform better in cooler classrooms. If that's true, then the temperature in a single-sex classroom could be set to optimize the learning of either male or female students.
Con
In myopinion, interacting with the other gender can make you more socialized and confident, and valuable to others. Having mixed schools willmake the students motivated and try to impress the other gender and they will try to achieveacademically so they can prove themselves. Studying in a mixed school will makestudents more competitive in an efficient way. Some schools in Saudi Arabia aremixed. Notonly the west has mixed schools, there are a lot of countries in the east thatare mixed. For example in the UAE all the schools are mixed. In my opinion, mixed schools motivate student to achieve higher marks in order to impress theother gender.
