What is Poland? It's country in Europe with the hardest language on the world! Everything there is different than in America but I will just compare Polish schools to schools here.

What is Poland? It's country in Europe with the hardest language on the world! Everything there is different than in America but I will just compare Polish schools to schools here.

 

They are a lot smaller, but there are many of them so everybody has school close to their home. There are also no school busses. In the U.S.  the school day starts about 7:00 am, but in Poland it begins at 8:00 am. School ends about the same – It's often around 2 or 3 pm. The elementary school ends in 7 th grade! Here you have each class with other people and you can often choose what classes you want to have (except core classes). In Poland you have all classes with the same people and you don't get to choose. There is also more learning, more tests and quizzes and a lot more homework. In addition, teachers are worse in Poland. They are meaner, and they often don't want to help. Of course, there are exceptions, but I was going to schools in both countries and I like schools in U.S more.

 

But which schools are better? Schools in U.S. are more healthy for kids. Less stress makes kids happier and more relaxed, which makes learning easier. In Poland there is a lot tests and homework. Children often learn for tests until late night.

 

Kids like American schools more, but I think Polish schools are useful for kids in future. Since kids learn more, although they may not like it now, they will see benefits when they get older.

 

American kids like their schools. I asked them to grade American schools in scale 1-10 where 1 means terrible and 10 means that these schools are the best in the world. The answers were between 7 and 8. But what drags American schools down? What are things kids don't like? "I think the food is under or over cooked" said Mitchell Deckert. Kayitlin Kaiser thinks we don't meet many people in school. In the same scale, I'd grade Polish schools about 4. My friends from Poland graded them mostly between 2 and 4.

 

Polish schools often also don't have money for technology. Most of them have just one computer lab and that's it. No smartboards, no laptops and no projectors. There is also no whiteboards. But when I asked my friends here if they would like to go to school in Poland, 2/3 answered yes although they said that there would be bad things about it. For example being too far away from home.

 

American schools have better way of teaching because teachers are always ready to help and they inform kids about important things in interesting way. In Poland teachers make even interesting things boring.

Although in American schools learning is easier, in Poland the results are better. But I would still choose American schools! What school woul you like more?
