    Default Schools in Europe

    I'm a teacher and I wanted to know what schools are like in Ireland, UK, Australia, whatever. I live america, and I wanna go elsewhere but I'm not sure why. I feel like that's a bad thing.

    I've been to Ireland. Lots of small towns, not a fan.

    I like big cities.

    I heard once that kids in Britain don't give a damn, but I dunno...

    Some of them don't. Some of them do.

    It's been awhile since I was at school, but these days there appears to be an increasing number of specialised schools croping up. Last time I went past that way, I noticed that the school I went to has become a specialised in science and technology. Whether that actually means anything, or if it is just imagine (or a means of getting more money) I don't know.

    i don't know what to tell you because i only know australian schools, i can't give you a relative judgement.
    i don't think we're particularly abstract or open minded in reguards to the cirriculum. it sucks in other words.

    I often hear that British schools are regarded to be as bad as American schools! For some reason American schools are thought of as the worst.
