So what do people think?
People can argue that crushes is all part of growing up, learning about love is also part of growing up. Young people should be able to balance our their lives between having fun with friends, studying, sports and even having a boy/girlfriend.
In Ireland, many grew up in separate boys and girls schools until they reach university, myself included... and I turned out fine (I hope). My other half went to a mixed school and he turned out just fine. Although I felt that I missed out on more diverse opinions of a mixed class. Fundamentally, restricting a certain minimum distance between two sexes, you can't hang out with your best bud just because they are the opposite sex... it's just a step in the wrong direction, plus why pairs of boys and girls? I hope this trend doesn't continue and spread to other schools, it's highly ridiculous to implement and enforce, and good golly, these kids are just growing up doing what kids do. Let them be.
