Students around the World

What do you have in common with students in Russia, Iran, and Mexico?

If you’re a student in the U.S., chances are you have the school year in common with them. All of those countries have school years that run from late August or September through June. Other countries have different calendars, like Australia and Nigeria, where the school year runs from January to December (with vacations, of course!)
