Which school is better? German or American schools?
On the one hand German schools have student councils and you can wear what you want at school and in Germany you have got the three type school system (Gymnasium, Realschule and Hauptschule). You have got a long day only two times a week. On the other hand American schools have school buses, school competitions and many sport activities (e.g. football, basketball). A very positive quality of American schools is that they have lockers, so the pupils do not have to carry all their books with them. Also positive of American schools is that they have a psychologist and a nurse at school, so if pupils have problems they can go to them. Also differences between these two types of schools is that in American schools students and teachers say the pledge of allegiance every morning. Another difference between German and American schools is that they party different festivals (e.g. German: carnival, American: Halloween) and they have differences in marks (German: 1 to 6, American: A to F). American schools are stricter, too.
That’s why we think German schools are better than American schools, because there are less rules and there are political activities for students or pupils (e.g. student councils).
