Why Are Finland's Schools Successful?
Outdoor activities are stressed, even in the coldest weather
Teachers are highly regarded and must have a Master's-level university degree.
Teachers, who are fully unionized, follow state curriculum guidelines but are accorded a great deal of autonomy as to methods of instruction and are even allowed to choose their own textbooks. As well as ICT.
They rarely take exams or do homework until they are well into their teens
Have the least amount of homework in the world. They average under half an hour of homework a night. Finnish students typically do not have outside tutors or lessons either
Finland has a national core curriculum, which includes the identification of the core subjects, curriculum frameworks and a clear definition of how much time each topic should be allocated
Many students attend the numerous state-subsidized specialized music schools after class where for a small fee they learn to play an instrument as a hobby and study music theory

What we can learn from education in Argentina
WARNING MAY CAUSE SEIZURES
Australia follows the three-tier model of primary, secondary, & tertiary schooling systems.
Schools are classified into 3 catergories which are governement, Catholic, and indepedent schools.
Regardless, all 3 prepare students with the same standard cirriculum framework.
64% of students attend public, meanwhile 34% attend private schools.
Australia's academic year year begins in the end of January and finishes in mid-December. The summer vacations are the biggest school holidays and during the school year, there are also small breaks about 10-14 days between terms.
Austrlian schools offer several programs for the different types of students such the gifted & talented, high-achievers and individual programs for students who need additional learning support.
Every school includes a high level in technology, providing internet access & computers for mostly each student.
Educators do not solely focus on academics but they prepare them for everyday life by developing communication skills, self-discipline and respect for themselves, fellow peers and the world around them.

EDUCATION IN JORDAN
The educational ladder consisted of four parts: primary (grades one through six); preparatory (grades seven through nine); secondary (grades ten through twelve); and postsecondary (all higher education).
Basic Education is a 10-year compulsory and free level of education.
English is being taught alongside with Arabic language in all Jordanian schools at the early age of six.
Islamic studies are also mandatory for all students
A female literacy rate of 85.9%, Jordan has the highest female literacy rate in the Middle East.
More women attend schools than men.
Gender segregation is in effective in the majority of schools and by next year it will be the law.
Foreigners as well as refugees are welcomed to study in Jordan due to their welcoming environment and hospitality.
The current struggle Jordanian schools are facing
Primary school starts at the age of six and they attend for five or six years and move on to secondary school.
Secondary school is middle school and high school which ends in the 12th grade.
GPA determines your academic status
Students in grades 3-11 take the FSA
Students in grades 5 and 8 take the FCAT 2.0 and in highschool the tests are SAT and ACT
In MDC we take the PERT if we did not take those other tests in high school.
Education is key and in our service learning project
we learned that in the United States at least where we are, teachers do all they can to educate the students.
There are a lot of programs to help the students and the US is technologically advanced. In Amelia Earhart they offer a program to help the lowest percentile of the
students in order to get them to achieve success.
Education in the uk!
The UK separates school by 4 stages
Stage 1 ages 5-6
Stage 2 ages 7-10
Stage 3 ages 11-13
Stage 4 ages 14-15
The ages of 16 and 17 spend time in something called a sixth form
The sixth form is optional it is meant to prepare students for college or allow them to spend two years in a college that offers courses of the sixth form.
The UK views this as a great way for students to get the college experience and find out what exactly what they want to do moving forward.
Using this method the UKs graduate percentage is at 65%
To top it all of they are given the freedom of class choices for the last two years since it's optional they could choose to go to a university or find a job.
