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

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.

It depends on size, US is much larger then Finland or Sweden so they have the time to nourish every kid's education, but it's also important for every child to be educated so the country isn't taken advantage of the other nations. China pumps out 6 million college graduates a year, that almost the amount of Sweden's entire population

Finland has actualy almost 50 percent less GDP per capita than the US. Yet they have enough money to afford such education.

it's a lot of factors, but the American mentality is that if we throw money at a problem it will be solved. Meanwhile, everyone and their mother is taking a cut. Another thing is what we don't value education as highly as Finland and Sweden because that's technically their export. Kids gets educated, they get secure paying jobs, pay taxes back, and repeat. An educated child is the best investment a country can do.

Oh My God.
Understand, people, that what works in ******* Finland won't necessarily work in the US or Canada.

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

And then they can go to the US for a degree and get raped by homework . . .

>There's no homework in Finland
>Finnish students rarely do homework until their teens

******** !!!

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

if one was to take out urban school statistics in america (many countries do something like this) then America would be in 1st or 2nd place in education... i learned that today in economics... if anyone cares...
