: : Do you know what are co-ed schools? What qualities do they have?

: From Merriam-Webster online:

: Main Entry: 1co·ed
: Pronunciation: 'kO-(")ed
: Function: adjective
: Date: 1889
: 1 : of or relating to a coed
: 2 : of or relating to coeducation
: 3 : open to or used by both men and women

What qualities do they have? In England, parents desire their daughters to go to a girls' school but their sons to go to a mixed school. As you will realise, it is difficult to satisfy both wishes.
