International Comparative Education

To understand the uniqueness and significance of education as practiced in the United States, it is important to realize that not every country in the world has a similar system. For this discussion, your task is to research the educational practices of one country and present your findings in a POWERPOINT to be reviewed. Your presentation should include the following:

  1. how the educational system is leveled
  2. whether it is public or private

3.whether it is mandatory

  1. who has access (socioeconomic, religious, ethnic influences)
  2. the education of students with disabilities
  3. whether it is nationwide or varies by locale
  4. connection between education and career choice (flexibility or lack of flexibility regarding choice).

Any country may be studied, but please consider exploring nations in the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and the Middle East as many of you will have the opportunity to teach students who have immigrated from these parts of the world.
