Most striking differences in school systems around the world

Schools around the world differ in subjects that children are taught, the number of hours they should study and the length of the school holidays. School is a place where children spend most of their time. Right there at school pupils usually decide what to become. Let's take a look at school subjects in different countries that are supposed to develop one's talents and skills.

Interesting that the Saudi Arabia picture has what looks like a token female and the rest male children.

This info is dull and doesnt bring out essential differences in nature of the systems.

In Australia, English subjects including reading, comprehension, etc are paramount & Maths is very important as well. History and Geography, plus basic foreign languages are offered in Primary School and more intensively in Secondary school. Sport is usually in the curriculum till year 10, and then it is optional. A lot more needs to be done regarding Aboriginal history and culture, as this has been largely ignored.

It would have been interesting to add how long they go to school each day/how long the school year is. I think Chinese children go year-round.

Wayne Power, I totally agree with you. I'm American but would have loved to read about Canada, UK and other countries.

By analogy, I can see that difference of “education “ in each nation dependes of the nature, tradition, and ideology of that country. “ l love the America way .”

Joanne Way, Likely because it's always changing ! Kids aren't being taught cursive writing anymore...I s'pose they'll just pick it up from their parents, if it's thought to be a required skill...? It's all keyboards nowadays. Being allowed to use pocket calculators during exams is ridiculous ! Soon the correct answer to every Q will be "Google It"
