I am doing a debate on single-sex schooling, and I believe that when you are around the same sex during the time period of where your hormones are spiking, and you only have your own gender around you, you will begin to experiment. You only have one thing to experiment with. So yes, I think it does promote homosexuality.
From year 5 to year 12 I attended a prestigious Anglican all-girls school in Sydney's northwestern suburbs. In year 10 and year 11, many of my classmates transferred to Oakhill and Barker, nearby boys' schools that welcomed female students in the final years of schooling. I felt a mixture of sadness and jealousy as I watched them leave for an environment that seemed much more like the real world.
A primary school that taught pupils about homosexuality as part of a programme to challenge homophobia has stopped the lessons after hundreds of children were withdrawn by parents in protest. Parkfield community school in Saltley, Birmingham, has been the scene of weekly protests over the lessons, which parents claim are promoting gay and transgender lifestyles. Equality assemblies will continue as normal and our welcoming No Outsiders ethos will be there for all.
Boys taught in male-only schools face divorce and depression by their early 40s, research reveals. You might have thought that boys brought up in a single-sex environment would find relationships with girls difficult to handle. It shows that boys taught in singlesex schools are more likely to be divorced or separated from their partner than those who attended a mixed school by their early 40s.

There is some debate about whether LGBT sex education should be included in sex education curricula.
Unfortunately, for many American students, insults and accusations are part of everyday life. All to often, students, as young as elementary school, are faced with criticism and judgment from their peers, and despite great efforts by many, there are still people in our country who are not the diverse, tolerant people we'd like to surround ourselves with on a daily basis. This unfortunate truth means that some students look elsewhere to find supportive and welcoming environments for their middle and high school educations.
Gender segregation exists in all walks of life. One of the most common forms of institutionalized gender segregation is perhaps single-sex schooling. It is critical to explore how single-sex schooling is associated with these psychosocial outcomes in adolescents and young adults because they are in the developmental stage when the desire and need to establish mixed-gender relationships increase.

An increasing number of mixed schools are teaching boys and girls in separate classes, academics revealed today. They found that both male and female pupils concentrate better when being taught core subjects without the distraction of the opposite sex. Mike Younger, head of education at Cambridge University, will tell a conference tomorrow that separating classes can raise academic standards.
Now that the school year is in full swing, we'd like to discuss one of the aspects of inclusive curriculum that we get asked about the most: the importance of incorporating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT issues in sexuality education. Providing LGBT youth with accurate and useful information that is relevant to their sexual health and development is critical, particularly given the sexual health disparities widely reported for LGBT youth, such as increased rates of sexually transmitted infections.
