Let's just pay all out teachers the extra money we have in our budgets! We've got plenty of money lying around, right?!
User avatar #190 to #182 - mummyslittlebitch (03/22/2013) [-]
in the military, yeah

They need to put more money into education, but not just to pay teachers more, so that we can reform the ways our archaic school systems work.
User avatar #186 to #183 - Jackimole (03/22/2013) [-]
You're right, we also have to hire more teachers.

As a Finn, I'd like to make a few points regarding education in Finland:

1. The Finnish educational system is not superior to that of other countries. We simply get less fructose as kids (example: the glucose-fructose-syrope in Coke destroys the brain).

2. Teachers in FInland are not esteemed - in fact, doctors and lawyers pity teachers for they extremely low salaries and the low-tier social status that follows.

3. We have a lot of swear-words. Feeling bad? Perkele vittu saatana jumalauta helvetin kusipäät ei kullin kyrpä.

Honestly, if we started to be more like Finland all of a sudden and stopped giving out homework, and giving more free-time, our failure rate would rise higher than it already is. Not only that but they've failed to mention that most European schools have longer school days, some going as long as till 5PM. Also, I'm not sure, but i think the reason why they do better with little homework and more free-time is because they don't need help when it comes to learning a subject. I know several students in my classes that do all their homework and still manage to get a D on a test while others that rarely do any, get A's because they're well learners.

it's not like we are better students here in Finland because we get less homework. Actually the amount of homework in high school is moderately high. but here in Finland the appreciation towards education is much higher than in almost any country compared (lets forget the asians). When it comes to the finals in my school, all my friends (me included) are studying like months before the actual exam because we WANT to be in the top 5% of the students who get the best score (Laudatur).

and to be honest, I think it's a bad education system if the students do not have enough time for themselves. If they're not motivated enough, well **** , it's their problem if they don't want to be employed or something that they dreamed of becoming.
User avatar #6 - analrapevictim (03/22/2013) [-]
The PISA thing, they exclude the students with low scores from the statistics I've heard... So that's ******** , if I'm correct...

No, I don't have any sources, my mom told me(she's a teacher)...
#10 to #6 - kirigaya (03/22/2013) [-]
maybe in some countries, but as a danish teacher i can vow that this is definetly not true. In Denmark

Stop reposting this. I have literally seen this 3 times in the last month.

I remember when my teacher at high school complained than we needed to study more at home. It only takes 30 minutes to repeat my 50 minute lesson, she said.
Bitch, I have 13 other subjects and I would like to have a life outside school too.
User avatar #199 - nomiscaveman (03/22/2013) [-]
Finn here, I know for a fact that teachers are NOT as esteemed as doctors and lawyers! Not even close.
User avatar #185 - Mahazama ONLINE (03/22/2013) [-]
Oh My God.
Understand, people, that what works in ******* Finland won't necessarily work in the US or Canada.

User avatar #193 to #185 - sketchE (03/22/2013) [-]
im actually going to agree with the post even though im american. all ive ever seen in highschool and elementary school is heres a peice of paper do it and get full credit. you arent actually being taught the material. the teacher then lecture for half an hour to an hour and students just scribble whats on the board which doesnt work for everybody

User avatar #194 - mistercookie (03/22/2013) [-]
Well, the school i go to my teachers just say "Do the homework if you want to, it will help, if not don't do it."
#187 - nymikemet (03/22/2013) [-]
Although I like the post.

no one with a masters degree wants to teach a bunch of poor *******
User avatar #173 to #125 - Loppytaffy (03/22/2013) [-]
Perhaps if teachers had masters, you wouldn't have so many "poor ******* "

im english but started school in Finland when i was 8 and Yes there is still homework but it is a very good school system but my school was very racsist towards me
User avatar #126 - bounod (03/22/2013) [-]
The claim that there is no homework from school in Finland is total bs. From what I remmeber from school is that the homework took some 2-3 hours on school days. If we had to write essays, it could have taken some 4 extra hour for one. These are rough estimates since the amount of homework varied between days and depending schooling level.
User avatar #102 - smokedmeatlog (03/22/2013) [-]
Not bad, but most of the larger countries cannot higher teachers with master degrees because they would have to pay them more, and they just dont have those kinds of resources. I would move there though.
User avatar #111 to #110 - smokedmeatlog (03/22/2013) [-]
**** me, thanks
