In the United States, we are constantly trying to improve education so that we can help students succeed in the global community. Our education system is often compared to those in other countries to see how American education "measures up." However, there are many differences between schools around the world.

 

BONUS: After looking at the pictures, compare American education and education in other countries. Write a paragraph explaining the similarities and differences that you INFER from the pictures and captions.
