Is the school identical all over the world?

No. School and educational methods often vary from country to country.

School of life

In school many things are learned, which it is necessary to know, for the development of life and future work. In many European countries, children go to school from the age of six, and it is compulsory until the age of sixteen. It’s a good thing, even if you don’t feel like getting up sometimes. In France, Jules Ferry invented the public and compulsory school for all children in the 19th century.

Different schools

School is not the same everywhere. Each country has its customs and its rhythms. For example, in Spain some schools open in the afternoon and others do not. In Germany, students work on general subjects in the morning and the afternoon is reserved for sports and manual activities.

The school in Africa

In some countries in Africa, children live in villages that are very distant from each other and therefore it is impossible to bring them together in the same school. That is why classes are organized in each village, bringing the children together in the open air. Just the opposite occurs even in towns and small rural areas of Spain with a very limited number of school-age children, who gather in a specific town and, generally larger, children from different nearby places.




Public: the public school is a free school open to all and secular, in which students do not receive, at least on a compulsory basis, religious teachings.
