Russian education is a lot different from ours. For instance, all children are required go to school for 11 years. At first children go to a nursery school until they are three. Then they go to kindergarten until they are seven years old. Children go to school six days a week. After ninth grade all children are ready to go to secondary school. The teachers at the secondary school train the students to be technicians, workers in farming, and industry. Students who have done well in both schools can take a test to enter a university. All schooling is from first grade to the university.
