The system of education in Russia
Russia has a long-standing tradition in high-quality education for all citizens. It probably has also one of the best mass-education systems in the world producing a literacy rate (98%) exceeding most Western European countries. That’s why I’d like to speak about it.
The education in Russia is divided into 3 big parts: pre-school education, secondary school and university-level education. Pre-school education. According to the statistics, about 70% of children aged 5 are enrolled in kindergartens. The system provides nursery (1 to 3 yrs) and kindergarten (3 to 6 or 7 yrs) services in urban areas, relieving working mothers from daytime childcare needs. Secondary school. The eleven-year school term is split into elementary (grades 1-4), middle (grades 5-9) and senior (grades 10-11). Compulsory Basic Education lasts for nine years. Graduates of this level may continue their education at senior high school to receive secondary general education. They may also enter an initial vocational school or non-university level higher education institutions. Children are accepted to first grade at the age of 6 or 7, depending on individual development of each child. Children of elementary classes are normally separated from other classes within their own floor of a school building. They are taught, ideally, by a single teacher through all four elementary grades (except for physical training and, if available, foreign languages). Starting from the fifth grade, each academic subject is taught by a dedicated specialty teacher. The school year extends from September 1 to end of May and is divided into four terms. Study program in schools is fixed; unlike in some Western countries, schoolchildren or their parents have no choice of study subjects. Students are graded on a 5-step scale, ranging in practice from 2 ("unacceptable") to 5 ("excellent"); 1 is a rarely used sign of extreme failure. Teachers regularly subdivide these grades (i.e. 4+,...
...Essay #1: Education
When it comes to education, many people automatically have a negative reaction; especially when discussing the United States’ educational system. Whether it is grade school or a higher education, most people would agree that something needs to be changed. However, finding the specific “what” that should be changed in the educationsystem is hard, because it’s failure is a combination of many things, rather than one direct problem. As citizens, we know that flaws are expected in any sort of process/system and the educationsystem, being so vast, is bound to have many issues in its own. Authors and scholars from around the world, such as Jonathan Kozol, David Orr, Sir Ken Robinson and many others, help present these flaws to the public through intense persuasive and informational writing/speaking. Data shows that the United States has been and continues to fall behind other countries like Finland, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, and Korea in typical testing of subjects like mathematics, science, and reading (Husén 455). Standards of education are varying from country to country and this is a direct reflection of differing goals per country on national scale, in terms of education. The United States has seemingly lower overall standards of education, as well as various and less...

In pre-school education the emphasis is on: - group work

...Understanding the Indian EducationSystem
India today is the second largest higher education network in the world.
Universities in India are set up by the Central or State Governments by means of legislation, while colleges are established by either the State Governments or private bodies / trusts.
All colleges are affiliated to some university.
The different types of universities are:
Central or State Universities -- while the former are funded directly by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the latter are set up and funded by the various state governments.
Deemed Universities - which enjoy the same academic status and privileges as a university. Examples are the Deccan College of Post Graduate and Research Institute, Pune; Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai; Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore; etc.
Institutions of National Importance
They are university-level institutions that are established or designated by Acts of Parliament and funded by the Central Government.
Most universities are 'affiliating universities', which prescribe to the affiliated colleges the admission criteria and courses of study, hold examinations and award degrees.
University departments impart postgraduate education and conduct and promote research in a variety of disciplines.
Undergraduate and, to some extent, postgraduate instruction is imparted by the colleges affiliated to a particular university.

...The educationsystem in Saudi Arabia
Education in Saudi Arabia is segregated by sex and divided into three separately administered systems: general education for boys, education for girls and traditional Islamic education (for boys). The Ministry of Education, established in 1952, presides over general education for boys, and education for girls comes under the jurisdiction of the General Presidency for Girls' Education. Both sexes follow the same curriculum and take the same annual examinations.
Islamic education trains Saudi boys to become members of the Ulema (religious clergy). The religious secondary school curriculum includes the general academic secondary school curriculum but focuses primarily on Islamic and Arabic studies. Religious secondary schools are administered by Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University and the Islamic University of Medinah. These schools, along with religious institutions of higher education, parallel the secular system.
PRIMARY EDUCATION :

This morning I will be talking about the EducationSystem in England. Let me clarify that
I am not going to cover the whole United Kingdom just England. I imagine most of you have some idea about the topic so what I am going to do today is to review it.
I will be developing four main points. Firstly, I am going to present the structure of the department overseeingeducation in England and give some basic information on its organization. Secondly, I would like to give you an overview of the construction of the system of school and universities in England. Then I will talk about primary and secondary education. Finally, I want to show some basic information about universities and people working there or studying.
Let’s start with the authorities responsible for National Education. The system is overseen by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES). The Department for Education is in charge of issues affecting people in England up to the age of 19, including Child Protection and Education. Its secretary is Michael Grove.
Now, I would like to illustrate the structure of schooling in the UK. Let’s look at this table (see Attachment 1).
Education within the maintained school system (that is-financed by public funds)...
...EDUCATION IN GHANA
The Republic of Ghana is located in West Africa which borders Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea to the south. The word Ghana means "Warrior King" and derives from the Ghana Empire.
Ghana was inhabited in pre-colonial times by a number of ancient predominantly Akan Kingdoms, including the Akwamu on the eastern coast, the inland Ashanti Empire and various Fante and, also non Akan states like the Ga and Ewe along the coast and inland. Trade with European states flourished after contact with the Portuguese in the 15th century, and the British established a Crown colony, Gold Coast, in 1874.
The Gold Coast achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1957, becoming the first African nation to do so and the name Ghana was chosen for the new nation to reflect the ancient Empire of Ghana, which once extended throughout much of West Africa. Ghana is a member of many international organizations including the Commonwealth of Nations, the Economic Community of West African States, the African Union and the United Nations. Ghana is the second largest producer of cocoa in the world and is also home to Lake Volta, the largest artificial lake in the world.
Formal education in Ghana preceded colonization.
The first schools were established by European merchants and missionaries. During the colonial period, a formal...
