Ed­u­ca­tion – An Im­por­tant Re­source

Southasia - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Since Switzerland has no nat­u­ral re­sources, ed­u­ca­tion and knowl­edge have be­come very im­por­tant re­sources. Switzerland claims to have one of the world's best ed­u­ca­tion sys­tems. The can­tons are re­spon­si­ble for ed­u­ca­tional services (kinder­garten, schools, uni­ver­si­ties).

Most chil­dren go to public schools. Pri­vate schools usu­ally are ex­pen­sive and peo­ple tend to think that stu­dents of pri­vate schools prob­a­bly didn't make it at the public school.

Af­ter el­e­men­tary school, kids may ei­ther choose to go to sec­ondary school or to start an ap­pren­tice­ship. In the lat­ter case, af­ter fin­ish­ing the ap­pren­tice­ship, it is still pos­si­ble to start an aca­demic ca­reer.
