Czech educational system from those foreign differs in many respects. In the domestic education, especially in primary schools, for example, fewer men. While the proportion of teachers in the Czech Republic is by CSO 97% of them abroad teaches an average of 82%.

Other differences can be found in the distribution of the various stages in the schools, the proportion of students in the private sector or in the amount of tuition at private schools. Look at the most interesting differences in international education.

French classes are designated numerals in reverse order

Public education is not only here but also in many foreign countries generally available. Yet the compulsory school age vary. While the Czech Republic is for children 6 to 15 years in the US primary school graduates 5 to 14 years and in France between 6 and 16 years. Italy's primary school lasts 12 years and in Germany on the contrary, even just four years. Differences can also be found at the division level of the primary education system. In France pětitřídý first stage refers to ordinary numerals in reverse order from the eleven. The second stage lasts for 4 years, 6 to 3 classes, and is completed diploma. What is different is the French high school graduation, because it contains more items than is our custom. General schools have three variants and technical even seven.

In Germany the sixteen educational systems

In Germany, pupils after elementary school choose between the main school which provides general education, a real school, or gymnasium. The real school is doing preparatory stage for study in high school and grammar school, high school curriculum content is then comparable with Czech high schools and ends with graduation. "In recent years in Germany they arise also called comprehensive schools, which combine all three types of school together. In addition, schools are not uniform, its particular form determined by each province. Currently there because there are 16 different education systems, "explained Andrea Vedralová of the training company My School Project, under which it currently operates a kindergarten, primary school and secondary school in Sokolov and also an elementary school in Prague.

Also in the US educational requirement on the structure of education in different states. In most schools the elementary school is divided into three stages, which together last up to 13 years. Then pupils proceed to the so-called college that offers courses on various topics, and is topped with a diploma, the Czech equivalent of a college bachelor's degree. These schools can also be part of the university. Students addition to the current markings and collect points semester GPA and ends with final tests, which make up 15% of the final mark, which is not our usual practice.

Central attending private schools in the Czech Republic only 2% of students abroad for almost 15%

Abroad, they are often compared to the Czech Republic attended private schools. A survey by the Czech Statistical Office showed that, while the sector of non-public elementary schools in other Central European countries are being educated on average 11.1% of pupils in our country is only 1.3% of students. A similar situation prevails in the case of private schools. Here's share, although thanks to the multi-annual grammar schools is slightly higher, but still a mere 2.4% of students compared to the Central European standard of 14.4%. In France, for example, has 30% lyceums, ie colleges, private character, in the US then, according to the portal student private school up to 10% of all children. Unlike the Czech Republic, there are usually also the school by gender, some of them are sponsored by religious groups, taught in a foreign language or focus artistic or sporting direction.

Private education abroad is usually the prerogative of gifted children, and his passing is also usually easy admission to a prestigious university. A common feature of Czech and foreign private education is an alternative approach and teaching methods, which supports a number of schools. "Private schools generally have deeper interest in individuals, their interests, abilities and skills that support. There's rather a family environment and students get even more value added, such as extended foreign language teaching, the use of advanced technology, international internships and fellowships. Also important is the personality development of the child, developing his strengths and individual approach, "said Vedralová.

Quarter universities governed by the US Church

Like the primary and secondary education lags Czech Republic in the number of students in private universities. For us this type of training uses a mere tenth of the students, while in the surrounding countries, private universities goes up to 24.6% of students. The largest share carries Poland, which is attended by up to a third of all students.

In addition, in tertiary education find other differences. For American colleges, for example, unlike our typical that is governed by state or church institutions. According to the National Youth Information Centre falls under the church in the US even 25% of universities. And if the United States decides to study law or medicine, not a part of normal curricula as in the Czech Republic, but it ranks among the so-called professional programs, preceded by a four-year study of any other field.

Tuition much higher than in the Czech Republic

At the level of private education abroad also reflects the level of fees, which takes into account the age of the student, the reputation and the quality of schools, as well as the size of the town where the school is located. Annual tuition in the United States usually begins at thousands of dollars in elementary school and two thousand dollars in high school. In some regions, reaching even $ 15,000, which is about 380 thousand per year. However, there exist various systems of financial support in the form of scholarships or vouchers, which employs a third of students at private schools.

Differences can be found also in the amount of tuition fees at universities. For example, in Germany for studying at a private university will pay approximately € 10,000 per year, which is about 270 thousand. Noticeably higher fees have in the US, where the average level of around $ 33,000, almost 840,000 crowns.
