For the 2de class. What’s the difference between American schools and British schools?
I was engaging in some friendly Internet banter on Gawker the other day and ended up (after being asked to do so) explaining the American education system to some Brits. There is a lot of confusion on both sides, partially because the systems are really different. I can’t say I think one is superior to the other, but they both have strengths and weaknesses. Thought it might be helpful to provide a real breakdown of how they differ. I can’t guarantee I’ll get everything right, but I think this should be mostly accurate. I’m going to deal with lower education first, and discuss universities later. Otherwise this will be a very long post.
First, the British System
