Teachers, please write in and tell us about the educational system in your country. How does it work for average students? Are there provisions for students with learning difficulties? How do you deal with your very bright students? What is a school day like for a teacher?

Word Press also shows a list of posts viewed and by how many viewers; a list of referrers and how many were used; a list of search engine terms and a list of clicks i.e. which links I have provided that my readers have clicked on – and which ones.
