Advantages: can be used to improve system, good insight into the current education system
Disadvantages: can be expensive and involve investing more money into the education system

Particularly interested to read that there are still schools operating the "credits" system - or plus and minus system as we used to know it back in the 70's......in our modern PC times I guess it's all pluses.......yes a really very intelligent take on this subject here. R. by RICHADA

Review of How Can We Improve Our Education System? by thedevilinme

Advantages: You can do well
Disadvantages: You are your parents

English GCSE grades have fallen 2% this year alone. This is partly because a non written and an easier part of the exam the school can mark themselves that boosts the grade was taken out of the final mark, that of the oral presentation. This is the segmen ... Read review

"Moths" ?? I think you mean "Maths." lol I think there is more to this issue in England than the study says. For a start, England has a lot more colleges that other pupils can go to if they can't get into university and it would be good to know the percentage of students from England who choose to study abroad. As for the content you suggest, written text and tests aren't the be and end all. by Nar2

Education Can't Be Saved Until Proper Funding Is Put In Place
Review of How Can We Improve Our Education System? by Nar2

Advantages: Can the public lead change?
Disadvantages: A lack of money can't save existing teachers or resources.

Scottish education for many years has been the major influence to American and Canadian schools as well as being well known worldwide for the practice, pedagogy and ability insight of pupils. Since the 1980s where individual pupil attainment, ability and ... Read review

The SNP are hellbent on having no tuition fees for students at present and for the indefinite future - therefore quality of education suffers. Overtime, the system will breakdown, no doubt Whitehall will be blamed as usual per se - c'est la vie. by 1st2thebar

Review of How Can We Improve Our Education System? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: UK's university high standards are catapulting the UK up to 3rd
Disadvantages: Falling behind on the secondary educational level

Letís put this in to perspective, the UK is ranked third in the world for its education system (2014); each generation is getting more qualified than previous generations - this is a fair assessment. Despite the debts education encompasses, it is compre ... Read review

Review of How Can We Improve Our Education System? by jojodixon

Advantages: working together, better relationships, shows they care.
Disadvantages: This isnt the whole answer to improving the education system, just a start.

Before I start, I would just like to say I'm not an expert on the subject of the Education System, but as I'm in school at the moment and have experienced the triumphs, flaws of school and have went through a large chunk of school life, I feel like I can ... Read review

Teaching methods (or lack of) is not a system. You've treated this 'CI' as if the question is asking for 'individual' opinions of (schooling/teaching) not improving a collective system. Lastly, locking up children in prison cells is grossly inane and will have dire societal consequences. by 1st2thebar
I disagree with a few points, but this about whether we agree on everything but the quality of your argument so an E from me. I do especially like that you mentioned respect needs to go both ways though and your idea on tedious work for rule breakers. I am completely against corporal punishment in schools - it is to open to abuse but we need something that is effective. Personally I want weekend classes for troublemakers. by Marge3781

Disadvantages: No Wales or Northern Ireland representation

Great to see Glasgow appear at last in one of these - I used to prefer it to Edinburgh. York would top my own list - and London wouldn't appear at all. A ghreat take on this subject here - surprised the rates don't more reflect that. R. by RICHADA

Iím not a big traveller inside the UK. Iíve only been to 3 cities in the UK in the entirety of my life so far, this is due to holidays often being abroad. In Kent, we live so close to the English Channel that France feels like a part of the UK to us. So ... Read review

Advantages: They're in the North
Disadvantages: I can't live in all of them, not enough words to describe how much I love them

After compiling my list of my five favourite cities in the UK, it's safe to say that my heart lies definitely and defiantly in the North. After moving northwards for university in 2002, since then I've stayed more north than south. So, in a vague order an ... Read review

Chester is a city I'd like to know better. Also Glasgow and Cardiff for that matter. Enjoyed reading your choices. x by torr
I much prefer small towns to cities, but an excellent review. Glasgow is an interesting city -some parts beautiful some parts not, but then I suppose that applies to most places. We lived there for awhile, near Ibrox, which isn't one of the most lovely places, but Pollack Park was nice. Still I was glad to get back to Belfast. I would love to see London's Museums but think the rest of it would be to crowded for my tastes. by Marge3781
