This usage reflects the historical process by which it was often female pupils who were admitted to schools originally reserved for boys, and thus it was them who were identified with its becoming "coeducational". . The word is also often used to describe a situation in which both genders are integrated in any form (e.g. "The team is co-ed"). . Or when one girl is assigned on an all boy team. .
