I personally am not fond of same sex schools and advocate co-ed schools .
In my opinion , if opposites aren't allowed to mingle freely , it leads to more curiousity , exploration and repressed feelings by kids. They will view the opposite sex as something taboo that needs to be explored .

If girls and boys are allowed to mix , then they grow confident in each others company . Learn to treat each other as friends rather than somebody they need to explore.

I agree with what Apana said, for healthy social development of children it is important that they interact with members of both sexes.

Well I go to an all girls school, and we're not really uncomfortable around guys. Like even in our school activities the guys schools are involved. The reason why girls in my school prefer having all girls is because in class it's easier to focus and I've noticed that the people in our classes are more open with each other, and we can all talk freely.

It's not like we're totally unaware of the opposite sex LOL LOL

But yeah there are times where girls in my school would like to be in a co-ed school, but overall I think I personally am pretty happy in my school.

Strictly responding to the topic, if we are talkign only of public schools then yes - they should be Co-ed. Because the nature of administration and education in public schools encourages interaction and is very urban in approach.

But if we were to extrapolate the same idea to colleges and schools in non metros, then.. NO.
What is the point of having a co-ed when you have two rows for girls and two rows for boys. One section of the parking lot for the girls one for the boys. Such an environment is lethal and will always bring about unhealthy interactions. Girls acting smug at guys huddled in groups passing lewd comments.
I agree with Vishesh here also about the rowdy element.
Such an environment not only induces affected behaviour but also does not offer equal opportunities to girls. Especially colleges where boys outnumber girls. Its so cruelly easy for a group of guys to pull down a girl who is outgoing and smart. As a result, girls as a group tend to be less active than guys. Put the same girls in a women's instituation and you will see the changes!
