USA vs Finland Education

No homework. Starting school later.   Time for play, theatre, poetry, etc.  All things that make Finland schools excellent.  Kids get to be kids.  Does this sound reasonable?

It should also sound familiar.  

Teachers in the USA have been decrying this for years.  Finland modeled their education from…you guessed it….American schools, from back in the day!

Our educational system has changed, not for the better.

Federal control, with its governmental and political mandates have ruined education.  The 3 “R’s”, reading, writing, and arithmetic, have been replaced by mandated ideologies that are thought to be more important than basic education.

Government controlled thought,  over basic education of reading, writing, that encourages personal thought and deed.   

Have a listen.
