One of the biggest challenges a 15 year old in Bavaria might face is pressure to do well in school. In Bavaria there are 13 different types of schools. Every type of school has a different type or level of education, and has different opportunities that come from these different types of schools.(The Bavarian School System) Bavarian teens face lots of pressure from a very young age to do well in school, so they can get into a higher level school with more opportunities.
Through this process, by finding a connection, I understand that I have a lot of opportunities where I live.
This is because in Bavaria if you get bad grades you get moved to a lower school, and have a very hard time getting into university. In the U.S. I have many opportunities for higher education even if I do get bad grades. Also, if you play a sport for a club and you aren't good enough or if the club doesn't have the sport you want to play you can't play it. In the U.S. if you aren't good enough you can play for a lower level team.
