Amazing Swiss Education
By Cassidy, Bryton and Sydney
Attendance and Technology
School attendance in Switzerland is not very different then Americas attendence requirement. In Switzerland you do not have to attend what we call Kindergarden, but in America it is at most schools and states required to go to Kindergarden. Schools in Switzerland recommend you to either go to secondary school or primary school just like in the United States. There tecnologloicaly use at school is a little different then ours. We use technology in our elementary schools and Middle schools, and ect. They only use there highly advanced tecnologly in there university's and colleges. Overall Switzerland isn't as different as people make it educational wise.
