How to Use The Website

 

You can easily use the this website. You can select any country and then from there go on to select a topic or chose a group inside the country (Example: catholic countries) and then continue on to compare what you find to a different country. You can look up in formation from the 1960 up to a couple of years ago. Lets say I wanted to look up information about education in the United States in the 1990’s, the top fifteen stats would come up with the date and at the underneath that would be the sources from where the information came from and look something like this:

United States

Author: chris.lockyer781

In the US, all children have access to public education until they complete high school. Children in the US begin their schooling around the age of 5 or 6, and may withdraw at 15. Preschool education and childcare exists in every city within the US, but parents do not receive financial aid unless they qualify. In the US, childcare is not guaranteed to parents.

All US students have the option of attending private schools, but public funding for those schools isn’t provided. There are, however, special charter schools that do offer an alternative and do belong to the public school system. Upon graduating high school, many US students go on to pursue advanced degrees at community, state, or private colleges. Colleges in the US are not free, unless the student receives a special scholarship or loan. However, state and community colleges are low-cost options, and state colleges are publicly funded.
