Comment on How is education in the United States different from education in other countries? by earanger.
I can tell you from what I observed living in Greece and Japan, and you’re right – it is different.
In both Japan and Greece kids wear uniforms to school. The school days are about an hour longer, and they go to school 1/2 day on Saturdays.
The teachers I saw were strict, very strict, and corporal punishment was used when the teachers considered it necessary.
One additional aspect I noted – most of the families were two parent families. The central focus of the family during the week was ensuring the kids completed their homework, and backing the school and educating the children.
