The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

The school system in Norway is a very contradictory topic among those who faced it directly. Most often outraged accustomed to strict discipline, control and detailed study of each subject. While parents decide what are the pros and cons of European schools and what each child needs, we try to look at the system of education in Norway through the eyes of an outside observer.

The junior school in Norway is a kind of continuation of the kindergarten. Kids get used that they can do anything not only at home but also in public institutions (by the way, the garden is quite expensive): wallowing in the sand and walk with a snot on their chins; lick favorite yogurt jar and do not hesitate to kiss fellow; bartering toys and call mom or dad with the requirements of varying degrees of importance. Children are put to bed, washed and dressed only at their request. Dining at kindergartens and schools do not exist and everyone eats only brought from the house sandwiches.

A lot of attention is paid to maintaining a healthy mind in a healthy body, as well as an understanding of forest laws. Norway is known to be the greenest, most environmentally friendly European country. From an early age, students are taught correctly to kindle fires to understand the behavior of animals, hiking and accept any weather conditions as something joyful.

Instead of a mandatory school uniform clothing, each student is obligated to have a raincoat and rubber boots, because every big brake children spend outside, no matter what is happening outside the window.

Classes begin in August: a specific number of times each is discussed, but usually in the middle of summer, all children are ready for the school and have prepared all the essays about holidays, photo assignments and the herbarium. Lessons begin at 8:30, but hurrying to work, parents can leave their children in a school since six in the morning. This is also a group of the extended day. The majority of the children visit these groups. In general, Norwegian kids are very busy with different activities, so it is very hard to see a child play games of surfing the Internet. A bit of statistic: in Norway people search norske spilleautomater (online slots) twice rarely that in Poland, and it is proved that more than 40% of the people, who play these games are less than 16.  In contrast, education is rather chip, but these groups cost a lot of money, moreover, if the parents are late they will be charged a certain fee, as each hour of the teacher is painted, and the extra ten minutes already equal to an hour. But all children, usually like these classes after school.
