It is an open secret that education is very important nowadays. It does not only broaden our scope, but also makes us wiser.
Firstly, it empowers people to get off in their career. That could be accounted for onrush of technology and drastic social alterations. Naturally, an educated person can think on a wider scale, analyse various social phenomena. In my opinion, that is very valuable and useful for all the spheres of human activity. Therefore, all-round employees have always been in demand.
Secondly, education enriches our experience and warns against trickery. As far as we know, a brainy person gets over difficulties and unfavourable situations much quicker.
At the same time, there are some well-off and educated people who are cruel and rude. They never feel sympathy for others, as their hearts are indifferent.
From my point of view, the concept scholarship should include both the level of education and person`s morality, since these qualities are inseparably linked with each other.
The educational system of G. B. is extremely complex and bewildering. It is very difficult to generalize about particular types of schools as schools differ from one to the other. The department of education and science is responsible for national educational policy, but it doesn`t employee teacher or prescribe curricular or text books. Each school has it`s own board of governors consisting of teachers, parents, local politicians, members of local community, businessmen and sometimes pupils. According to the law only one subject is compulsory. Such as religious instruction.
Schooling for children is compulsory from 5 to 16, though some provision is made for children under 5 and some pupils remain at school after 16 to prepare for higher education. The state school system is usually divided into 2 stages (secondary and primary). The majority of primary schools are mixed. They are subdivided into infant schools(ages 5 to 7),and junior schools(ages 7 to 11). In junior schools pupils were often placed in A, B,C or D-streams, according to their abilities. Under the pressure of progressive parents and teachers the 11+ examination has now been abolished in most parts of the country. There are some types of schools in G. B. Grammar schools provided an academicals cause for selected pupils from the age of 11 to 18. Only those children who have the best results are admitted to these schools. They give pupils a high level of academic education witch can lead to the university. Technical Schools offer a general education with a technical bias and serve those pupils who are more mechanically minded. The curricular includes more science and mathematics. Secondary modern schools were formed to provide a non-academic education for children of lesser attainment. The curricular includes more practical subjects. The comprehensive schools brings about a general improvement in the system of secondary education.
