The most common reason given for this singularity is Religion and the thought of keeping those budding young men and women off each other at the height of their sexuality.
This worked fine on paper. But as time and time again and as Dr. Boyard Farmer and Al Ahemedia Kurfian remarked in their respective papers, single sex schools lead to a situtation where the budding sexually ripe children are removed from their natural counterparts and are thrust into the arms of wanton need for their classmates (of same sex). This leads to the rise of early homosexuality (both male and female in every instance where it was observed and recorded).
Richard Elfus did a very detailed study of this phenenomeon and he concurred from his oberservations that out of 500 schools he sampled ( half of which was coed and half single sex). He found that the number of homosexual activies in noncoed school were almost 480% more than that on the coed. His report also stressed that one out of every 2 kids in the non-coed schools had some type of sexual encounter before they reached the age of 12 (and coitation by 16 with the same sex on 70% of the cases) as compaired to 1 out of every 10 children in the coed schools and a 1.5% homosexual realtions in coed's sampled. This lead him to conclude that single sex schools was actually having the exect opposit effort that they were supposed to give. Also the coeducated students sampled were on the average much brighter with an average IQ almost 10 points over that of the single sex students.
This works with Majeediyaa and Aminiya as well. More homosexuality was made at both these insititutes combined that in any where else on Maldivian soil. I am deeply disturbed by this trend and was hoping that by going into a coed mode this distrubing trend could be sliced in half and stuffed out of existance.
On the idea of dividing the schools into 4 different ones. I would go with it if they were all coed. And privitazed. Also conformity is an issue here. Maldivian kids are not given the chance to be unique, they are all moulded into the same white uniform wearing parrots that their brothers, father and mother were. They all grow up in a singularity where they think of the same thing. They are never given the chance to progress in their own uniqueness and experiement their own creativeness and artistic abilities. What I'm stressing is that conformity is a bad thing, and that if these 4 schools are made, conformity should be killed. Uniforms should be abolished and a more restrictive and friendly environment given.
