Co-education means the education of boys and girls together. In recent years some of your 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 should be adopted and the existing college and schools should also be opened to girls.
The supporters of co-education also say that this system would provide an opportunity to the young men and women to come closer and understand each other. This would be very useful to them I 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.
But all these arguments are not based on facts. All of our institutions are overcrowded, The girls schools and college 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.
