Let's face it, the world is becoming more and more interdependent each day. Many countries are members of the United Nations, the North Atlantic Trade Organization (NATO) or the European Union. Consumers rarely purchase a product that doesn't have some foreign part or was not constructed with foreign labor. Yet despite this growing interdependency we see that countries still maintain their own cultures and customs - a clear example of this is education.
This website explores the differences between educational systems around the globe in an effort to learn about learning. It deals with such topics as curriculum, schoolday and year, matriculation, testing and much more. We hope this innovative and informative site will assist you in better understanding the development and theory behind education and how it affects your world.
