Education Intro


The education a country offers is not limited to its educational system and its universities, but anything from language courses, cultural classes, museums, libraries, or even a chat with a friendly neighbor at a local café.  We’ll let the other pages take care of that info.  As for this space, it would have been helpful if we’d had a chart like the one below when coming to France – the public education system is not intuitive and the high-pressure choices for teenagers to make with regards to their future are a bit confusing.  Also, why would someone go from 6th grade to 5th grade, 5th grade to 4th grade and so on?


About Author


I've lived in France since August 2006 with a stint back in Washington, DC for a year. Ten months of my time in France were spent in Rouen - the Normandy town known for, among other things, Joan of Arc's death and Monet's study of light. With the years that pass, Paris is constantly transformed by the interesting people I meet who open up new doors in this amazing city.
