This is why Finland has the best schools

*******

Got the link for this Excellent article from one of my Facebook friends. They have buttons to share to Facebook and Twitter, but, as far as I can see, not to Our sites. Hence a few Excerpts, and a Link.

Do Peruse. I believe this is Very Useful.

“For five months, my wife, my son and I experienced a stunningly stress-free, and stunningly good, school system. Finland has a history of producing the highest global test scores in the Western world, as well as a trophy case full of other recent No. 1 global rankings, including most literate nation.”

“In Finland, children don’t receive formal academic training until the age of seven. …School hours are short and homework is generally light.”

A mandatory 15-minute outdoor free-play break EVERY HOUR EVERY DAY. According to one Finnish maxim, “There is no bad weather. Only inadequate clothing.”

Educators are the ultimate authorities on education, not bureaucrats, and not technology vendors.”

(Emphasis mine).

Wish All Education would be like This. Especially in India.

  1. Thanks for the referral. It is a very informative post for me. Although I am a great believer in Democracy, only a few intelligent people are elected to public office and bureaucrats often lack the expertise for the regulations which they administer. I really loved the term “technology vendors.” These are the bandits who operate without masks but are robbing our children with the help of our elected types.

    • Very Truly said, my Dear Phil, that altogether too many elected legislators are unworthy. bureaucrats are just that, those who push open and then shut, the bureaus.

      Thanks for dropping by. Regards. 🙂
