I read in the papers today that a 16yr old Polish boy, dubbed a genius by his teachers here in UK has returned to Poland to continue his studies because he feels the standard of education is worse here in UK than what he was getting in Poland. I believe he was going to a Roman Catholic state school in the North East of England.
Even with all the excellent conditions here in UK he said he'd get a better education back in Poland, so he has moved back to Lodz to live with his grandmother and continue his studies.
The boy, Aleksander Kucharski said that there was more motivation to learn and educate oneself back in Poland ! Most students were concerned with shopping and not getting a proper education.
Do people agree that education standards in UK have dropped, and getting a pass in an exam is easier than it was , say 20 years ago ? The Ofsted report for the boy's school state it is an excellent performing school.
“In Poland I only make average marks in maths. Here teachers says I am a genius. It shows a lot about England’s education system.”
