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.

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"

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

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.

Hardly touched Australian tertiary education what the hell do you mean by native language ??? You are completely off the mark , what nationality are you that you can write such drivel??? Some people reading this might actually believe it.

Academic s are important, but clothing, haircuts, classroom behavior, make up classes, teacher respect, mandatory vs electives and more play a crucial role in k1-k12. College acceptance is more biased than the recent USA “buy in” from parents- who are now in court or have been sentenced...

Some schools put a lot of pressure on the students, but it is the best age to learn.

Not much to compare and contrast in the information that has been given. In Saudi Arabia children get intermediate and secondary education. Nothing is said about what subjects are taken at those levels.
