The Eight Realities About Education and Learning Around the Globe.
School is a norm for most of us. You attend the learning institution with a population of thousand other students and get knowledge. That is it, for most people. However, it has been noted that this may not be the case for various countries. Listed below are eight significant findings about education across the world.
The first country in China. The research was undertaken by the Economic Co-operation and Development on how much homework children are offered each week, China was the leading country in giving more homework to children. In Shanghai China, a fifteen-year-old student utilizes about fourteen hours each week on homework. Surprisingly, The next country on the list was Russia yet the students spend less than ten hours in a week.
Then there is Netherlands. In this country, children attend pre-school and day-care before they are their fourth year. Surprisingly, the first day after their fourth birthday they transit to primary school. So in each day, a student is joining the primary school.
Then we have England. This country holds the most ancient continually functioning school in the world.

In Australia, there is a school that employs Radio learning as the only means of schooling. This school is known as the Alice Springs and is located in a very remote area that make it difficult for children to access it.

The other discovery is with the City Montessori school, located in Lucknow, India, The school broke a record of holding a maximum of 39,437 students in the year 2010.
Most importantly, it is alleged that education leads to greater earnings. Based on the findings by the UNESCO, each year a child is in school is translated to an increment of 10% of their future incomes. This is even more valuable to children in the developing country, an opportunity offered to a child to attend an added year of learning translates to better earnings. Another important discovery by UNESCO is that an amount of billion a year could send all the adolescents to school. It is evident that a vast population of adolescents do not attend school.
