Teachers in the Great Britain.
Research by Education Support Partnership
suggests that 75% of school teachers and
college lecturers suffer from work related
stress. Increased work pressure from marking
and exam targets lead some teachers to work
12 hours a day. Many are leaving the
profession due to stress.

Stages in the Great Britain.
In each country there are five stages of education: early years, primary, secondary,
further education (FE) and higher education (HE). The law states that full time
education is compulsory for all children between the ages of 5 (4 in Northern Ireland)
and 16, the compulsory school age (CSA). In England, compulsory education or
training has been extended to 18 for those born on or after 1 September 1997. This
full-time education does not need to be at a school and some parents choose to
home educate. Before they reach compulsory school age, children can be educated
at nursery if parents wish though there is only limited government funding for such
places. Further Education is non-compulsory, and covers non-advanced education
which can be taken at further (including tertiary) education colleges and Higher
Education institutions (HEIs). The fifth stage, Higher Education, is study beyond A
levels or BTECs (and their equivalent) which, for most full-time students, takes place
in universities and other Higher Education institutions and colleges.
The National Curriculum (NC), established in 1988, provides a framework for
education in England and Wales between the ages of 5 and 18. Though the National
Curriculum is not compulsory it is followed by most state schools, but some private
schools, academies, free schools and home educators design their own curricula. In
Scotland the nearest equivalent is the Curriculum for Excellence programme, and in
Northern Ireland there is something known as the common curriculum. The Scottish
qualifications the National 4/5s, Highers and Advanced Highers are highly similar to
the English Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced Level (A2) courses.


In 2015/16, the UK spent £3.2 billion on under5s education, £27.7 billion on primary
education, £38.2 billion on secondary education
and £5.9 billion on tertiary education. In total,
the UK spent £83.4 billion on education
(includes £8.4 billion on other categories).


Types of Schools in Britain
There are two different types of school:
State schools
Private schools


State Schools.
There are schools run by the Government.
These schools are known as State Schools and
parents do not pay. They are financed by public
funds, which means that the money comes from
the national and local taxes.


State schools are divided into the
following types:
* Grammar schools
* Technical schools
* Modern schools
* Comprehensive schools


Private schools
* All students at private schools must pay. Typical
fees for 2011 at a private boarding school in
Britain are £24,000 per year (inclusive of
accommodation and meals). The fees at private
schools are exactly the same for British students
as for overseas students.


The most famous public schools are
Eton, Harrow and Winchester.

Education in The USA.
Americans place a high value on education.
Universal access to quality education has been
one of the nation’s historic goals. In 1865
education was becoming available to all.


The American system of school education differs
from the systems in other countries. The
peculiar feature of American education is the
absence of national administration. Each of the
50 states controls and directs its own school.

Private Secondary Scholl
Foreign students who would like to attend an
American high school, need to consider how
the high school they select will give them
access to the best colleges.


Harvard College

principal purpose of providing a literate ministry
for colonial churches. It was a small institution,
enrolling only 20 students in 1642 and 60 in
1660. It soon became more than a theological
training school and established itself as a liberal
arts college
