Poles don't start school until 7 years of age. in the US we start first grade at age 6. in Poland once you finish grade school , you are not required to continue your education. In US you are required to attend 4 more years of high school. Maybe they just jelous that we have more education than they do
Krysia what a ******** you say. Who told you such rubbish?? What do you mean by "you are not required to continue your education"?? I have no idea what you talking about.
In Poland barely happens that someone drop out of school unlike in USA.
You have elementary education: 6 years
middle school: 3 years
after middle school you can choose between:
- high school (3 years) - most common option, finishing exams
- high school with education of some profession (4 years), finishing exams
- profession school (2 years) and you can continue your education in supplementary school to gain access to collage
If you dont know something better dont say anything.
Krysia why you are a self-hating Pole?
Recently someone told me a story that in Texas they still talk very offensive polish jokes. I was really disgusted to hear an example of one of them.
Ok, maybe you are right that high school is not obligatory in poland but it really doesnt happen that someone doesnt continue an education... if someone doesnt continue education then it means that he is less than zero - absolutely no work in future. So it really doesnt happen...
