Actually it would be good to have a global perspective on the school
start ages, pre school, secondary school etc and an indication of the
variations in terminology
In Victoria, Australia..
Child care 0 to 3-4. staff TAFE child care trained.
Kindergarten (although some use the term "Pre School" which suggests
to me curriculum driven learning) 4-5 Teacher degree qualified
Prep(I presume an abreviation of "preparation") although it is really
grade one! 5yrs.
grades 1 to 6 then follow in primary school Grade 6 = 11 years.
Secondary school years 7 to 10 and senior secondary years 11 and
12.(usually in the same school)
Tertiary entrance follows year 12.
Some students move to the technical sector at year 10 and may do a
thirteenth year.
It would be good to have a full international listing please.
