There are number of similarities and differences in Western and Eastern Education. However, both have it's worth. The curriculum is always based on literature and history of the region. So this is the main difference between two systems. However, some institutions in East has adopted the western curriculum and there is no difference between these education systems. The Government institutions in East however, are stick to their old curriculum and don't include advance research in their education. In my opinion, it is a good idea to combine both the education systems and devise a definite system.
