A Glimpse into Kibbutz Education
Childhood Education, v81 n4 p201 Sum 2005
Teachers around the world face similar issues. For example, they worry about how to provide effective instruction, they ask themselves what they can do about inadequate funding for education, they question the efficacy of standardized testing, and they wonder about their status and position within the social structure. However, each country's education system reflects particular local ambitions, cultural goals, and traditions. Although the basic system may be similar across continents, the local nuances make key differences that reflect that specific society. One way to gain insight into our own education dilemmas, methods, and goals is to examine how teachers in dissimilar settings address parallel issues. Thus, it is both informative and incumbent to examine education processes in other countries. This article examines the education processes in other countries, comparing and contrasting the issues and resolutions.
