American versus European Education

High School ・Sociology ・MLA ・2 Sources

Globally, the education system varies. The education services may be either the same or different, such as term dates and classes. The comparative education research focuses on the methodology and programme of study between countries and continents in the field of education (Manzon 1). It focuses on the relation between the studies and how they can be enhanced. When comparing the different education systems, the relationship between education and a country's community, the overall academic achievement and the effect of teaching on the growth of society is established and understood. This paper analyzes the educational disparities between the American and European systems. The similarity between the U.S and European education is that both two countries offer quality higher education. Most of the higher education institutes in these two continents rank among the best institutions in the world. The culture of this quality education is portrayed in Harvard and Oxford universities from the U. S and Europe respectively. Moreover, institutes from the two countries have better research facilities to promote innovation and research (Housman 181).

The differences between the education systems between the two nations are the school curriculum and the term calendars. The European curriculum has four stages: starting with infants’ aged five to seven, junior stage, the pre-GCSE and finally the GSCE (Huisman 184). The A- level follows afterward. In America, the system is divided into the pre-school, elementary, middle school, junior high school, senior high school and then college. These change the time that an individual takes in school. Another difference is in the period of education varying in the two regions (Housman 186). The U.S divides their education into three terms: fall, spring, and summer while the academic year in Europe is in quarters. These differences make the union fees in the United States to be higher than the European system of education.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
