Poland's schools are succeeding, more than many others, in narrowing the gap between the weak and the strong, the gifted and the challenged.
It's nothing to be proud but rather to be shameful. The gifted are wasted and can't really spread their wings fully at Polish schools. The troubled are lowering the levels so the gifted ones are expected to do less and less thus they don't fully develope. I dream about Polish schools when seeing a mathematically gifted child giving him special care to develope his mathematical abilities, not bore at lessons when his mates are troubled at grasping the most simple things. I dream about Polish schools having serious art and music lessons so that talented children could learn something there, not just draw an odd picture which they are given 5 for whatever it is, or in case of music lessons - a lessons with REAL music instruments (in fact mostly it's just singing songs).
