I'm not racist, but how many hood-rat, KFC-Lovin', grape-soda drinkin', watermelon chompin', baby-momma-baby-daddy Nig-Nogs are in Finland? I'm just asking. I'm not racist or anything.

Its ok my dear white brother, the question is acceptable, does not have to be targeting any racial group, to answer your question, there aren't really that many cotton-picking, low pants wearing, crack selling, street hustlin', welfare check collecting ****** out there, mainly Finns, (95%), Swedes (4.5%) and a tiny bit of Russians (0.5%)

Maybe you are mistaking cause for consequence. Many ***** straight from afircan tribes went to my country to study colleges and ended up pretty good.

Yeah compare Finland to New York and think the population size isn't gonna effect the outcomes, makes sense. Also majority of New York's population comes from New York City, which has a large immigrant population, and I don't mean to be racist, but coming from large city myself, it's usually immigrants who don't do well in school, cause they either don't care and would rather go bum around with their "gang" and be faggots all the time, or they come from a country which they most likely had very little formal education, so you can't just expect to be at a highschool level when they go to a new country.

I agree. Although its seen in the white population in my town too. Its more to do with a general consensus that school is something to be endured rather then enjoyed. Which currently it is.

in reality european countries do not look to Finland, yes they do good in PISA test, but what is way more spectacular is Canada. Canada was way down in PISA tests, only like 10 years ago, and now improved ALOT. thus it's more exciting if you want to improve your schools, look to those who do improve, not those who just stay at top. Especially since 1 teacher per twelve student, how expensive is that for the state?

Who the hell thumbed you down? Thats just not fair, and yes the world does infact look at Canada when it comes to education, right now theres a big debate about school system and teachers going on in Denmark, and Canada is like the glorified goal to reach. So kudos to them!

It's because they're more homogenized. We have a ton of blacks who just don't ever cut it. Even though they give such heavy, uneven funding to minority schools, they're still incompetent beyond belief. Finland doesn't have this problem, or if they do it's on a much lesser scale.

This is because
1: the classes are easier because of the lower workload and amount of tests.


2:There are no ******* bringing down the average.

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.

I fail to see how this makes a difference. In which points would a higher population cause the US to be worse off than Finland?

How can one became a teacher withour Master's Degree? You can't became teacher without it in Poland.

I have friends who graduated 2 years ago that are already teaching classes at my school.

It may depend on what you're teaching, but my sister is now a Physical Education teacher, and all she had to do to be able to teach in West Virginia is take a test.
#177 to #172 - ironfistballcrush (03/22/2013) [-]
I don't know your law, but I think it, as you said, it depends on what you want to teach. It is even hard to imagine a person without degree, who teach eg. maths or chemistry.

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.
User avatar #149 to #144 - aabbccddeeffgghhii (03/22/2013) [-]
*Sarcasm* And if we could get more teachers, we would by now. Large numbers isnt a new issue, its about a decade old at this point*
