Rajasthan Villagers are opposing Co-Ed English Medium School for their girl childs

People of Khairabad are protesting the establishment of an English medium government school in their village as it would mean that the existing girls’ school is converted into a co-ed. 
Khairabad’s girls-only higher secondary government school would become a co-ed English-medium school as a part of State govt decision to tranform one school in every block.In the remote village in Rajasthan’s Kota, many parents are not comfortable allowing their daughters to study with boys. So they want separete schools for girls and boys. “Many generations of girls in this village have attained education because there was a separate school for them, but if it is converted to a co-ed school, many parents will not send their daughters to school,” said Habib Noor, father of Ibadat, a class VIII student in the proposed school.

“This is a very conservative village. People object to interactions between girls and boys. Parents send their daughters to a girls’ school and ensure that they go only to those tuitions where boys don’t come to study,” added Noor. About 50% of Khairabad’s population is comprised of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Muslims.

Hemlata has four daughters, three of whom study in the Khairabad’s girls’ school. “Until Class V, they had studied in a co-ed school because they were kids. But from Class VI, during their teenage years, a girls-only school is best for them,” she said.

She claimed that even her daughters don’t want to study with boys. “My youngest daughter was about to take admission in the [girls-only] school this year, but after hearing about the conversion of the school to a co-ed, she now says she doesn’t want to join”

Khairabad’s residents have written a letter to the chief block educational officer, saying the government’s proposal is not acceptable to them
“After a lot of struggle, this girls’ secondary government school [up to class X] was upgraded to higher secondary in January this year. With that, we had hoped that our daughters would now be able to complete their education till class XII. If this school no longer remains a girls’ school, then it may be a possibility that most of the girls will drop out, which is not good for their future,” it adds.
