I have just finish my college entrance examination,which matters most to Chinese students.
Not only us but also our teachers,parents even the whole social attach great importance to it.Before the examination,we have to study hard,give up your habbits just bury yourselves in endless homeworkes.It seems crazy during this time I always ask myself why I have to do this.The reason why we matter it is college entrance examination decides what kinds of college you will attend and this influence your job future.However many students regard it as a chance to improve themselves. Finally,i'd like to know what you think of college entrance examination in your country,does it matter or not(PS;China's large population, the employment pressure, resulting in fierce competition)

|I've frequently watched Chinese dramas and had seen many competitiveness elements in finding jobs and doing jobs (must be a hard time for you, the pressure and all). Here, the system is the same in China, if we want to find the right college for us, we need to do well in our biggest exam which is on the last year of high school. It matters but here,in my country, but we haven't gotten the pressure (compared to China) yet.
Hope you stay strong, my friend.
I'll (hopefully) start in an IB-high school here in Finland next autumn, and was wondering if anyone had any experiences about the program? What did you like? Was it fun? What would be your tips for a scared 1st-year-student? I'd love to hear from you, here or with an email :)

I think French educational system is quite close to British one. As I do not trully know another system I can't really judge this system. But just one thing I find very important, is that, apparently, university studies in France are far cheaper that in many other countries (especially USA : of pure curiosity, I recently searched how could one year of learning in a random American university, it's absolutely horrific). I think that, if we consider that "All men are born free and equal in rights", the very least governments should do is to make education totally free.

Je trouve les profs un peu stricts mais ça permet de bien travailler. La plupart des étrangers que je rencontre me disent que les profs français sont plus "froids" et distants avec les élèves que ceux de leur pays. Les profs viennent, ils font leur cours, puis s'en vont: ils ne discutent pas vraiment avec les élèves comme aux Etats_Unis par exemple.

I live in Germany. In the primary school (4 years) the school starts often at 8 o´clock and ends often at 12 o´clock. The kids take their breakfast from home. In my class were 20 pupil: 10 boys; 10 girls. The primary school was for me great: a lot of friends and funny teachers. We got everyday homework, it wasn´t much. After the fourth grade changes a lot. Most of schools start at 7:45 o´clock and end at 15:45 o´clock. There´s one hour lunch, where you can buy something or eat your bread from home. Often there are 30 kids in the class, sometimes 31 or 32. The lessons are sometimes very hard, and of course the teachers aren´t so funny anymore. Sometimes you get homework, not everyday. The teachers give you sometimes a lot of work: doing the homework can take one or two hours of your free time. And you don´t have a lot of free time.
I hope that I helped

|Hi, Abigail. I'm a High School Student in the Northeast. Personally, I despise it. It makes sense for some regulations to exist (because otherwise many more students would be underserved at school), but I don't think all of the restrictions that they created are practical or sensible. For example, they require that 50% (might be a different number, I can't remember) of all material read by students is nonfiction. That prevents teachers from distributing a lot of classic literature - so we end up missing out. The standardized testing stuff means we are taught to take tests, rather than to actually learn. If teachers could write their own curricula, they would be more passionate with their teaching and students would be more engaged in learning it (that would fix the dropout rate, somewhat).
The stuff that you mentioned about all students needing to learn the same things also is a big "no" to me. What happens when students already have mastered the curriculum. Especially in the lower grades, my experience was that teachers are reluctant to give separate, more-challenging assignments because the curriculum leaves no margin for it.
Students in the United States learned well for many years. What evidence shows that the common core isn't diminishing the educational quality?
I'm just asking students around the world about their opinions about education.It has always been a heated topic.
We'll have a debate on it next week.

Hey people, because this is debates forum, I will bring you up a topic to discuss.
It's about education. What do you think about violence that teacher do to discipline the pupils? Does violence still exist in your country's education?
| 15313 - Reply from Valentine16 , 14 yrs (France) - 2015-01-11 |
I live in France (so far of Indonesia !). In my country, violence is THEORICALLY forbidden. But there's of course some teachers, but a minority, who still use this kind of "education".
In my opinon, that's simply incorrect. I'm for peace and I don't think violence is the solution to solve any problem. Pupils are too talkative ? Maybe that's because lessons are sometimes boring. What about make more interactive lessons ? Pupils are impolite ? Maybe that's because the teacher is too. What about speak peacefully. Pupils are violent ? So, if they are punished because THEY ARE VIOLENT, why do the teachers punish them WITH VIOLENCE ??? There are some mysteries in the universe.
And in Indonesia, are the teachers violent ?

| Personally I think it depends. If your doing some sort of project that requires research then it would be better and also fun to do it with friends. They might help you out with certain things and they might have facts that you need and vise versa. Certain projects should only be done with close friends as certain friends could back stab you and steal your ideas. That doesn't just happen in movies you know! Essay assignments and smaller projects should be done alone. Some times friends can distract you when you doing homework, essays, or small assignments. These are the worst kind because they are small but require a lot of thinking. You just want to get them done and don't want any distractions. I learned that the hard way.|
