Changes in the Czech educational system

Today started a new school year for all pupils and students of basic and secondary schools. Today means also rather big changes in education system in the Czech Republic.

So far Czech children were mostly taught by sitting and listening to the lecture, curriculums were made centrally by the state. From now on schools can prepare their own individual curriculum for pupils of the first and sixth grade and combine several subjects together. Pupils are also encouraged more to learn from practical examples.

From today children have to get used to the new school regime after two months of holiday. In the morning the police patrolled at many crossroads near schools to make sure that children would get to school safely. The police officers now keep on focusing on pedestrians crossing the streets. They will not only punish bad behaviour but also award good behaviour on the crossroads. This action will be held until 7th September 2007.
