This article goes to explain why Finland’s education system is ranked the highest in the world, and how their education system “Puts the rest of the world to shame”. Some of these reasons include: children not starting school until the age of 7, almost three times as much recess, very few exams and a minimal amount of homework, one standardized test their whole school career, etc.
This article is really interesting because it shows that the key to a good education is not constant studying and billions of reviews and exams and the dreaded homework. In fact, it is more the opposite, a more relaxed approach. I think the US should learn some lessons from Finland about education.
