No matter how you did, it is interesting to see what we don't know about education systems around the world. There are basic similarities that prevail in education in general but every country employs its own structure greatly influenced by their culture.
Lets take a look at some facts about education systems in the countries our field partners are from!

The education system in Nepal is one of the youngest they world with the first formal school for the public appearing in the 1960’s. Prior to that, the education system was guided by the Hindu culture. The initial vehicle of education was homeschooling. Later, it shifted to traditional Gurukul or seminary where “Gurus” were responsible for disciples of education. The students lived in the Gurukul under the complete guidance of a Guru who decided what type of education was given to the students.

Public schools in Mexico are free and the Mexican government goes even farther by providing free textbooks for grades 1-9. High school students are not as lucky, textbooks funds come out of the parent’s pocket.

    About children

    I’m not sure that these children live well. this is all doubtful. although on the other hand, if they had the opportunity to live in another country or with other resources, it is not a fact that they would be so happy. For example, if you send them to <a href=http://serinhotelmarmaris.com/2019/06/19/casino-hotels-in-atlantic-city/>hotels with casinos in atlantic city</a> one of these hotels, then most likely they would be lucky to win money there. and it would be great if they spent them on their own development
