My paper will inform readers of the educational system found in Costa Rica: everything from what students wear to how classes run. In addtion, I will address the issue of the instruction of the English language in the classrooms, and how it is approached. My topic will be supported by text, online, as well as personal sources. My topic is important not only in that it gives readers, and our class, a glimpse of how schools run in the country we will be visiting, but also, more importantly, it dives into the area that I am making a professional career in: education.
