- Co-education, where male and female students share educational institutions, remains a debated issue with varying perspectives.
- Pakistani scriptwriter Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar opposes co-education, considering it detrimental to society and future generations.
- Qamar emphasizes the need for separate schooling and has avoided endorsing indecency in his cinematic works, insisting directors must convince him for such scenes involving revealing attire.
The topic of co-education, where male and female students share the same educational institutions, is one that has sparked debates and discussions for decades, and it remains a complex issue with no simple “yes” or “no” answer. Several factors contribute to the ongoing debate surrounding co-education. Pakistani scriptwriter, Khalil Ur Rehman believes co-education is what is contributing to the downfall of the society and causing immense harm to the future generations.
One of the most critical factors is the social and cultural context. The acceptability of co-education often depends on the prevailing norms and values of a society. In Pakistan there are still many prominent figures like Khali ur Rehman Qamar that are against co-education.
The impact of co-education on academic outcomes is another point of contention. Research on this topic has produced mixed results, with some studies suggesting no significant effect on educational achievement and others claiming that single-sex education might lead to better results in certain cases.
Effective implementation of co-education also hinges on well-trained teachers who can create a balanced and inclusive learning environment. Without proper teacher training, co-education might not realize its potential benefits.
