‘Insisting on Co-education should be abandoned’
DIYARBAKIR - Egitim-Bir-Sen Diyarbakir branch deputy executive assessed the system of co-education and stated that insisting on co-education system should be abandoned due to its disadvantages.
Egitim-Bir-Sen Diyarbakir branch deputy executive Recep Gunes spoke to ILKE News Agency (ILKHA) regarding the disadvantages of co-education system and that it should not be insisted on students.
Gunes explained that the system of co-education leads to students being unsuccessful rather than successful therefore it shouldn’t be insisted on them.
“Insisting the co-education system on students should be abandoned”
Gunes underlined that insisting the system of co-education on students should be abandoned and there should be alternatives where female students can be educated separately. “The education system before and after the republic should be evaluated differently. Those who have a problem with religion have made several revolutions to the education system as a way of getting revenge from Islamic areas and this has led to our education system to regress. The system of education should not be sacrificed on ideological insisting and instead it should be back to its original form. From this perspective, insisting on co-education system on students should be abandoned or there should at least have alternatives of single gender education system.”
“Even the European countries are aware that the system of co-education is wrong”
Everyone is aware of the disadvantages of co-education system and some European states have realised this and have taken steps to prevent the disadvantages, said Gunes. Adding, “The system of co-education clearly reflects to society, science and religion. Even the European states are aware of the disadvantages of co-education, which has been insisted on us. According to the figures, in America 253 schools are providing single gender education. It is noticeable that there is a major difference between school with the system of co-education and single gender education. However, in our country no workings are carried out so we are calling out to our government to abandon co-education or at least families should be provided with alternatives.” (ILKHA)
