Comparison and Contrast

Title: Education System of the USA and India

The title of this essay will be a comparison and contrast between education system in India and the United States. The main area of focus will be determining ways in which there exist similarities and differences in the manner in which education is provided to students in the US and India.

Thesis Statement

There are various ways in which education system of India is similar to that of the USA as well as various ways in which it is different from that of the latter. By investigating this topic, it will be possible to understand the similarities and differences in the manner in which education is provided to learners in India and the United States.

The main motivation for investigating the similarities and differences in education systems in India is to enable Indians who will be moving into the United States understand them so that they can prepare to adapt to the new education system. For instance, they will be required to prepare for the manner in which learners are prepared for competence in various areas. The main target achievement from this investigation is to illustrate to the students of Indian origin who are moving into the United States the similarities they expect to find during their studies as well as the differences in the United States compared with India. I also target to understand the manner in which education is provided in various methods of learning and areas of emphasis in education systems of the United States and India.

The evidence that I plan to present based on my experience is that I have observed that during my studies in India, I observed that the education systems focused mainly on studies while in the United States, it enabled the learner to be an all-round individual by providing education in various fields. My experience also shows that the education system of India was more focused on the need to pass examination in a particular area while that of the United States focused on acquisition of particular skills that are important in career development or getting employment. In the presentation of my evidence, I will provide actual practical activities that education system of the United States focuses on as well as the study areas. I will also illustrate to the audience the manner in which education is provided to students in India in terms of the areas of study. This will enable them make personal judgments about the two education systems and understand the similarities and differences without much difficulty.

The audiences that I intend to address by this study are students who were initially studying in India but decided to move into the United States for further education. From my observation, there has been an increase in number of students from India moving into the United States for college education or university education. By informing them about these similarities and differences they can become aware of them so that they prepare for the requirements associated with them such as practical demands of various courses rather than only focusing on studies. Consequently, they will take a shorter duration of time to adapt to the new education system rather than learning from experience and they will be able to excel and graduate from various areas of studies.
