Every country has its own unique way that they conduct their schooling. We all know how the education system differs in different countries but today we are going to take a look at how different education is in each country. What the unique traits are. We are going to take you on a journey around the globe and the positives and negatives that they face.
Religious clothing is banned in schools in France
They lead with the belief that religion and public life should be kept far away. That is why they don’t allow religious clothing to be worn in schools. In 2011, there was a controversial law that made it illegal to hide your face in public which banned Muslin women from wearing a facial covered burqa.
Lack of Classrooms
It is believed that children connot learn effectively without the right learning environment. Sadly, many places across the globe don’t have the necessary funds or resources to equip children with the bare necessities. For example, in Malawi, there are an average of 130 children in one class. They suffer from not having their basic needs met either like running water or toilets.
Chinese students learn by memorsition
In China, their methods follow a rule of memorisation and retention of facts. Their university admission exams are students memorising and repeating content. They don’t follow the path of analysising studies or critical thinking. This is actually the major reason why fields like science, engineering, and mathematics excels in China.
It has also been said that because the Chinese language depends on memorising thousands of Chinese characters. This contributes to their way of learning, by memoristion.
A lot of us have been lucky enough to go to schools that are nearby. Not just that, but we have had transportation as well. School buses, parents dropping us, public transportation. Other countries aren’t as lucky! There are many students across the world who have to make journeys that can last as long as 3 hours!
Imagine the effort of studying in a school that takes you 3 hours to get to and then 3 hours back home.
Have you ever wanted to help change the world? But you have no idea how to go about it? Well, we are bringing you our campaign, WeEducate, where your donation of $8 will help 2586 students get back to learning!
