I watched Panorama last night and in one school where the intake of Polish children was high, the results had a significant impact, the results in the following subjects had gone up in a positve way.

English (well I'll be god damned - we need Polish children to increase our schools pecking order - I dont mean that in a bad way it just shows you how these children adapt and contribute)

&

Maths - they had a high level of aptitude for maths

Because the level of math in Poland is higher that in England - the subject you need to know how to count, not spell :)
I compared books on math for the same age group.... the difference is significant...

True or false, I have no idea.

They do have a strange way of teaching Maths here. In Poland teachers seem to teach the most difficult, outdated way to answer a problem. There are simple ways to answer some questions.

Generally the whole education system in Poland is rather forcing to work hard than actually teaching things.

And that what gives advantage.. you learn how to think, how to uderstand the teacher and if necessary make a coffe and cakes appear on his desk to move exam date..

All what sound stupid usually makes a profits in the future.

If you don't work hard, you don't learn. On the other hand,
you cannot teach if the student is not willing to learn, i.e., work hard.
'nuff said.
