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

Yeah, we could. Lets KILL millions of children to get that 1-12 ratio Finland has! I'd say thats that biggest contributor. A masters degree is amazing, but its WASTED on 3-16 year olds and only comes into play in college years, because 3-16 is so basic compared to a masters degree. A better ratio is much more valuable than ANYTHING else mentioned in this, yes no homework is nice but not essential. Remember when you were a kid, or remember earlier today if you still are. Didn't things just click in your head better when a teacher sat next to your table and asked you question? Well, thats basically whats happening in finland constantly. Thats why its so great, it has a small population.

Yes killing more childeren is the solution, not getting more teachers.

I also hate that teachers in the US are being forced to adopt government produced lesson plans for each subject, rather than letting teachers develop their own lesson plans. Guides are fine, but actually giving a teacher a plan and making them follow it is a terrible thing I believe. It makes both great and poor teachers average, and takes away their freedom to teach. This would probably kill my motivation if I were a teacher, making me perform even worse.

I ******* hate college. 4 courses is minimum in my school (not sure about other colleges in Finland) and if you don't pass them all, you should be expelled. This is my schedule for this period (little explanation about subjects: ÄI02 is Finnish, RU04 is Swedish, MU03 is music and FI01 is philosophy) and I've already failed Finnish course and I'm sure I'm not going to pass Swedish. Finnish school system may sound pretty good, but for me it's horrible. I am too slow learning those things. But I have decided to change to vocational school since it is little bit easier to pass.

I don't care if you don't care, I just wanted to tell this to someone

TL;DR: I don't like Finnish school system and I am failure.

That is actually a really good point. No offense to you, but people like you who are below their inflated average are forced to attended vocational schools and are removed from the statistics with some sort of technicality.

Now tell me how much larger is the US's population compared to Finland's?
User avatar #61 to #14 - vanhoutte (03/22/2013) [-]
Now tell me how corrupt the US's education system is? oh and the health care system? oh and what about human rights? oh don't let me forget the government itself as well. There is no perfect place in the world don't get me wrong, but at least in places such as Finland, France, and England for example, they take more care in the well being of the citizens than America ever will. Seriously, Paying 300$ for a broken leg is ******* retarded. or attempting to speak out for what you believe in only to be crushed by the "powers that be" because they don't want anybody to realize that the government is n longer for the people. But for the corporations with big money. freedom My ass.

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).

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.

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)...
