Annotation

My subject for this Research Work is Education in Latvia and United States of America. I have built up practical an theoretical part by my own. In my Research Work the prior subjects are Latvia`s and USA`s educational system`s detalized recital and higher education recital for both countries. I writed more information about higher education because in novadays, especially in Latvia, its topical to go learn abroad, in that case to USA too. In theoretical part of my Research Work I wanted to show, that educational system in Latvia is not bad. This Research Work is made and addressed to students in 12th grade and ofcourse for other interesents. This work has been very useful for myself, because i am getting additional information about the level and possibilities in Latvia`s education. My hypothesis for this Research Work is - the education systems in Latvia and in the USA are different and this is a reason why people in Latvia choose the USA for studies very often. The Aim of the Research Work is to compare the education systems in the USA and in Latvia and to find out middle school students opinion about studies in Latvia and in the USA. The main objectives of this Research Work are to collect the information about educational system in Latvia and USA and to make a questionnaire and analyze the results of middle school students opinion about studies in Latvia and in the USA.
