EDUCATION SYSTEM
DIFFERENCES
Some real opinions and thoughts about the education system in the US:
EDUCATION IN THE 80's
Maria Catalan and Laura Corona
EDUCATION IN THE USA
REAL OPINIONS
For them sports are really important, every school or college has its own sports team.
Another difference is that in the USA students switch classes while in Spain teachers are the ones who switch classes.
In the US, schools have a dress code.
One of the main differences between the Education system in the USA and in Spain is the grading scale:
A: 100-90%
B: 89-80%
C: 79-70%
D: 69-60%
E-F: below 60%
"It's extremely stressful and the majority of things we’re forced to learn end up being unnecessary. The teachers are fascists and inconsiderate of the students’ physical & psychological needs. We’re forced to do things we don’t believe in and if we disobey we get punished. The school hours and number of standardized tests are scientifically proven to be harmful to kids’ health, yet schools refuse to do anything about it. American education is problematic and needs changing."
In the 70's people said schools didn't make a change so in the 80's there was a response to that popular belief.

In that decade, schools were asked to raise their expectations so that all students might learn more.
