Besides, I think the polish magister is not recognised as a master's degree in many countries. It simply serves to point out that the graduate completed "day" studies.
It's starting to be recognised as such now, I think. But it depends on the institution - some seem to still be doing 5 years rather than 3+2, but the big ones seem to have changed over.
I did see something very sad yesterday. I was teaching a class of 15 year olds, and decided that after they did a test, they could play hangman for a bit. I opened the book, found a suitable phrase and started...only for one kid to try and cheat when my back was turned. For his mistake, I made him stand up and talk about cheating, and made the second hour of the class about cheating.
The tragic thing was that out of a class of 8 kids, all of them admitted to cheating. Even the quiet as a mouse, obviously intelligent girl in the class admitted to having cheated on quite a few tests.
The systematic nature of cheating combined with a complete lack of remorse and punishment is terrifying. There seems to be absolutely no realisation on the part of many Poles that everyone having a magister combined with having cheated means that these qualifications just aren't as valuable as elsewhere in the EU - yet many people seem to be incredibly defensive about the actual worth of their qualification.
But I blame this at the door of the education system here.
