The No. 323 of XLSemanal published an interesting article on the duties they have to perform the students in the various educational systems known worldwide. It seems to Me useful to reproduce here the description of the four models of education ‘ in this article:
Four models of education And work:
The continental model
The most followed in Spain
The tradition of encyclopedic and memorística French imported Spain, Germany… Few breaks. Many subjects. Wealth of lessons of language in the professor, take notes and examinations in which to respond to the letter. Curricula were so heavily laden that there is no way to complete them without the reinforcement of school. It is not strange that the ‘revolution of the duties that’ have arisen in France. The parents believe that rob them of too much free time to their children… and to them, because they have a greater tendency to help: the family structure is more protective
The anglo-saxon model
The creativity award
British and americans advise children to work an hour and a half at home, and two and a half hours if you go to the institute. Well balanced in a system in which the classes are rather light compared to the continental model. We try not to ‘burn’ to students with an excessive academic load, although this has led to a drop in the level of technical subjects. The household chores have a great value in the note and rewards creativity; on the contrary that in the continental model, where it is considered an obligation and its incidence typically only have character penalizador if you do not.
The scandinavian model
Fewer teaching hours
There is No overload of teaching hours (a child finn will have about 1500 hours of class a Spanish to pass High school). The classes are short. Many recesses and breaks. Relaxed and with practice varied. It shuns memorization. And there is no obsession to continuously assess. The only obsession of this system is to detect as soon as possible to children with learning difficulties to ensure equal opportunities. Few exams and with minor significance. Will send some homework home for them, but very light. Yes, it is inconceivable not to bring made.
The asian model
The power of the requirement
Students receive private lessons after school hours: 90 per cent of koreans, the 85 in Hong Kong, and 97 in Singapore. So that the duties don’t usually make at home, but in the academies. And that’s despite the fact that in the schools the timetable is the morning and afternoon. Students arrive home exhausted, about eight in the evening. The system is very competitive. It follows the confucian tradition, which rewards merit. The parents neither raised that has not duties. The classes are tense. Ask for the lesson. It punishes. The tests are dog face. Generate a high level of distress. High rate of suicides.
