16 Unusual Things At Schools That Are Normal In Some Places





Most students arrive at school in the morning, books in backpacks, uniforms all clean and nice, then return home in the afternoon with an armful of homework. They come back the next day and do the same things they did yesterday.

This is what comes to mind for many of us when we think of schools. Sometimes people forget that the way they do things in their country isn’t necessarily the way it’s done everywhere else. In fact, some schools are a little different than we expect.

A school is a place where students learn and meet new friends. The area and structure don’t have to be the same in every country just as long as they can be a good environment for learning.

While there are many types of schools around the world, education is important and we should remember not to take it for granted.
