Education System of Two Countries
It is the common objective of educational system in any countries to foster its citizens to become productive members of its society. Every country has its own education system. Two countries United States and Japan have also their own education systems. After World War II, the Japanese education system was built based on American's education system, so the education system in the United States and Japan have a lot in common fundamentally. American and Japanese educational principle is similar. However, the entrance processes are quite different.
At first glance, pursuing university education of American and Japanese universities
appears to be straightforward. The basic system seems to be identical. Both countries
have two-year university, four-year university and technical school. Students enter
college after they have graduated from high school, or simply demonstrate their ability to
get higher education. Students can take any classes that they wish to take and they are free
to devote most of their time to education. Both countries put children of 6 years to 15 years
old under an obligation to be a part of education system.
Even though American and Japanese university basic system seems to be identical,
the entrance processes are vary significantly. In America, compared with Japanese university,
it is easy to enter university. Students do not have to take the admission examination to enter
the universities and all what students have to do is just to submit the required documents such
as high school transcript. When students just enter their universities, they are not expected to
have good academic skills. However, it is difficult to get units and graduate from university,
because they have to show their good skills in the class, so not a few students who can’t get
the units and it take much time to graduate. In short, students who want to enter American
university need to study hard...
