Other countries' education systems

by math4life

Are very different from ours. I don't know details concerning every country, but in many countries students are not given many choices. And their education system is stricter than ours. Our students are given choices and told they can do or be anything they choose. Students in other countries are tested early and trained to the occupation in which they tested high in - whether they want it or not.
I worked with foreign exchange students last school year and they were here from Germany for our senior year. They were going back home to another 1-2 years of school. We have much more freedom of choices than they do at home
