The word academic performance itself is ambiguous and not clear. As life is not only upto the academic pinnacle of a person. Any institution focuses on preparing their student as a complete human being not just paramounting on any of the special aspects. Even discreminating on the basis of any mean seems stingy and doesn't give good learning example for the future of children. One of the studies televised on Discovery, states that the academic performance is related to the state of mind. Its all upto individual to control and divert the mind wherever he wants to. If an individual unable to do so, this needs to be taught first as its the only primary need of any individual to bank his future on. Even such kind of rules jeopardizes the attitude of person and may cause uncorrigible effects. Reasearch done by indian scientists in 1993 shows that, in the age of 11 - 17, person lears more from his surrounding than any book. Individual tries to relate all the things with the surroundings and this thing makes lasting impression on building the charectere of an individual. As any organization works on sole principle of making its students versatile and competible with the practicle situation, such kind of genetically related situations must be taken care firmly instead of avoiding it on basis of congenitalism. Implementation of such rules causes squlidness, aloof ness and chalant the personality of the person and which is definatly hazardous to the future.
Any reles intuitive with any kind of descrimination must be shown door and never be taken into consideration with some little evince.

Reference Essay

Learning styles among genders have been studied for years. Girls do learn technical subjects, like mathematics and science, better in classrooms that are segregated according to gender. Boys are more successful in some subjects when non-traditional teaching methods are used. Although the reasons for this are unclear, the phenomena are well documented.

Girls and boys in middle school and high school would benefit by being in gender-segregated classrooms. The research seems to indicate that girls are unduly influenced by the presence of boys in the classroom. Boys are disadvantaged by traditional teaching methods, which normally favor developmental skills that girls master quicker and more easily than boys do. Unfortunately, there is no way to deliver this kind of instruction without raising the question of whether the instruction in gender-segregated classrooms is of equal quality.

In the ideal, instruction in gender-segregated classrooms would be equal in quality. Teachers would be allowed to determine which teaching methods would work best for each gender and teach accordingly. Both genders would benefit. Instruction would not always need to be delivered separately. Students would be taught in mixed-gender classrooms for some subjects.

More research should be done on this subject to determine why girls and boys perform better in gender segregated classrooms in some subjects. Additionally, research should be done to determine whether different instruction methods tailored for girls or boys can be delivered with equal effect. Finally, studies should be conducted in gender-segregated classrooms – in private schools if necessary – to determine whether the results can or should be translated to the public school system.
