School’s out

We where at the school that our son is starting after the summer holiday.
It looks really good, and the teachers seems to be very competent and nice.
We where surprised to hear that Swedish school are looking at the education system in New Zealand.
Now we know why! Our kids enjoy going to school and they are really motivated to go there.
They are encouraged to take part of the education and engaged in their study.
There are some differences in the levels and how the academic year are divided.
Since Swedish school study English from 3rd grade, our children had an relative easy way in to the school.
And with the latest results from Pisa, we are very happy that we left Sweden.
