International students who come to the United States may wonder about their American classmates' prior education. Due to its local variations, the American education system appears confusing. In addition, the structure and procedures at American universities differ somewhat from other systems, such as the British model. This is a brief overview of the American school and university systems.
To begin, because the country has a federal system of government that has historically valued local governance, no country-level education system or curriculum exists in the United States. The federal government does not operate public schools. Each of the fifty states has its own Department of Education that sets guidelines for the schools of that state. Public schools also receive funding from the individual state, and also from local property taxes. Public colleges and universities receive funding from the state in which they are located. Each state's legislative body decides how many tax dollars will be given to public colleges and universities. Students in grades 1-12 do not pay tuition. College and university students do pay tuition, but many earn scholarships or receive loans.Write comment (0 Comments)

The United States of America entered the 21st century as the world’s sole superpower after the fall of the Soviet Union in late 1991. Certainly a lot of superlatives can be attributed to the U.S.: the third most populous country in the world with 327.7 million people; the largest economy; the most powerful military, among others. The U.S. also has the second largest higher education system (China overtook the U.S. in this regard roughly around 2001), and it is the top destination for globally mobile students.Write comment (0 Comments)
Before making any major decisions about your children’s education, it’s important to consider their individual ability, character and requirements.
The US has the most diversified education system in the world, with public and private schools (‘school’ usually refers to everything from kindergarten to university) at all levels flourishing alongside each other.
The American education system offers a rich field of choices for international students. There is such an array of schools, programs and locations that the choices may overwhelm students, even those from the U.S. As you begin your school search, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the American education system. Understanding the system will help you narrow your choices and develop your education plan.

Higher education in the US is recognized worldwide for its quality and variety. There are three main levels of higher education: undergraduate studies (bachelor’s degree), graduate studies (master’s degree) and postgraduate studies (doctor’s degree). Here you will find everything you need to know about attending college in the US.
The American school system is divided into elementary school and secondary school. If you are moving to the US, it is good to be familiar with the general setup of schools when it comes to grade levels, hours, terms and services.

In addition to the many private schools that follow the American curriculum, there are a number of international and foreign-language schools. International schools accept students of all nationalities and religious backgrounds, who are taught in English. Where necessary, students whose mother tongue isn’t English receive intensive English tuition.
In the US, compulsory schooling is typically divided into three distinct levels, each with its own curriculum and school. Students are taught a broad range of subjects and usually participate in extracurricular activities. Though educational standards vary from district to district, learning about the general organization of these schools will help you prepare for your move.

The Spirit of an Angel
Michael E. Johnson
Start date 6/2007
To my wife, Vicki; who, for me, puts the stars in the sky.
Father Vincent Capodanno
A special commemoration to Father Vincent Capodanno who, on September 4, 1967, was killed in Vietnam combat during Operation Swift. I am thankful to God I was blessed to have been able to share a small portion of his life in a remote area near Chu Lai, South Vietnam.
During our idle time in Vietnam my buddies and I would spend our time talking about going home or what we would do when we got home. Constantly, that was all we talked about: the girls we knew, the cars we drove, the places we would hang out, and on and on.
I was sure Father Capodanno never had those thoughts. His thoughts were there, in Vietnam. Thinking and striving to help others.
He was either in Chu Lai at his Chapel or in the hospital visiting the injured. When he wasn't in Chu Lai he was with the Marines out in combat; always serving God, and the Marines; never thinking of himself or his own safety.
I remember on one occasion when we were on an operation. We were sweeping a field walking in a line formation. About fifteen yards from me two Marines had tripped some type of land mind and were seriously injured. Out of nowhere Father Capodanno climbed a fence ran out in front of everyone and was the first person to arrive at their side. He gave no thought to his own life, only that he knew he had to get to them to serve them with the faith that he so truly believed.
I knew then that he was a special person. It was as though he was our Father watching over us, like a Guardian Angel that was there for our time of need. Not thinking about going home, only thinking of us.
Shortly after I returned home I had learned that he was killed during Operation Swift. As I read the details of his death I knew he was doing what he had done so often, he was helping and comforting others.
Not a day goes by that I do not think about Father Capodanno. He is with me daily; he is my way, my life, and my guardian. We, the Marines that were blessed to know him were truly blessed by an Angel. He continues to be with us, and will be until our final destination home, when we all will be together again.
To all the war veterans of past, present, and future with a special dedication to all my fellow Vietnam veterans.
To my mom and dad, Hazel & Robert
And to Randy Johnson
Although some of the Vietnam events portrayed in this book were based on true experiences of the author, this book is a work of fiction. Any resemblances to actual persons, living or dead, are entirely coincidental
