Education Finland and stating the obvious, what does it tell us?
So let's see the clip is telling us that education should be... caring, inclusive, focused on student needs, professional, learning in groups is good, self reliance, trust, time to think and just enjoy being young, hope for the future, engaged parents, society allows time and space for the nurture of young adults and overall education is highly valued. Hard to disagree so what is this saying about other education [systems] in other countries? And meanwhile as I write this riots continue in the UK, Greece and the ranks of the poor and disenfranchised grow in other supposedly first world countries. So what does this tell us?
