What do you think of education across the world?Watch
If you have attended school in other countries, what do you think? How does it compare to any experiences of the UK education system? Which country has the best system? According to this the UK is only in the top 20 of the world
I rather like the look of the IB and the German Abitur. I think pupils should have to take a range of subjects (languages, humanities, social sciences, science and maths) up until they're 18. It seems mad that kids in the UK can drop any subject they like post-16. I often see people on TSR who are doing three A levels in effectively the same subject (maths, further maths and physics; geography, geology and environmental science; English literature, English language and drama; business studies, accounting and economics etc) - ridiculous.
Multicultural / multiracial educational resources seem to be another British phenomenon since the 1990s.
How many countries have a large number of both religious schools and secular schools like England does with its C of E and RC schools?
Are Berol Handwriting Pens used in schools in other countries?
They have summer sports festivals, inter-school competitions for specific sports, and even a school festival open to all where each class has to decide on a theme (e.g. a restaurant, horror house). Despite all that fun, some students do go to cram school but the majority simply enlist the help of a student mentor to aid them with studies.
All in all, I'd say I enjoy the system there more than I do for the system here.
