Let's just pay all out teachers the extra money we have in our budgets! We've got plenty of money lying around, right?!

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.

You're right, we also have to hire more teachers.

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.

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.

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).

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)...

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.

Finn here, I know for a fact that teachers are NOT as esteemed as doctors and lawyers! Not even close.

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

No separate classrooms. So everyone sinks to the lowest common denominator and no body rises up and beyond.

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.

Perhaps if teachers had masters, you wouldn't have so many "poor *******"
