Greenland

Overview

Greenland is located to the north east of Canada and just west of Iceland. It is the world's largest Island and is approximately 81% ice-capped. The Vikings from Iceland were the first inhabitants arriving in the 10th century. The Danish arrived in the 18th century. Greenland became a part of Denmark in 1953. In 2008 Greenland voted in favor of a stronger self government, however, Denmark continues to control their foreign affairs. The literacy rate is defined as over the age of fifteen with the ability to read and write. 100% of the 57,600 inhabitants meet this rule. The spoken languages are Greenlandic, Danish and English.

Education

The educational system of Greenland follows that of Denmark of which it is still a province.
