Finn here, I know for a fact that teachers are NOT as esteemed as doctors and lawyers! Not even close.

Well, the school i go to my teachers just say "Do the homework if you want to, it will help, if not don't do it."

The claim that there is no homework from school in Finland is total bs. From what I remmeber from school is that the homework took some 2-3 hours on school days. If we had to write essays, it could have taken some 4 extra hour for one. These are rough estimates since the amount of homework varied between days and depending schooling level.

no one with a masters degree wants to teach a bunch of poor *******
User avatar #173 to #125 - Loppytaffy (03/22/2013) [-]
Perhaps if teachers had masters, you wouldn't have so many "poor ******* "

Not bad, but most of the larger countries cannot higher teachers with master degrees because they would have to pay them more, and they just dont have those kinds of resources. I would move there though.

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.

if one was to take out urban school statistics in america (many countries do something like this) then America would be in 1st or 2nd place in education... i learned that today in economics... if anyone cares...

Let's all believe a person on a funny aggregator with no sources. At least the weed post had 8-10 sources.

Oh My God.
Understand, people, that what works in ******* Finland won't necessarily work in the US or Canada.

im actually going to agree with the post even though im american. all ive ever seen in highschool and elementary school is heres a peice of paper do it and get full credit. you arent actually being taught the material. the teacher then lecture for half an hour to an hour and students just scribble whats on the board which doesnt work for everybody

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.
#64 to #34 - John Cena (03/22/2013) [-]
What you mean if you don't pass them all, you should be explled? It is true that the total minium course number is 75 courses, however this is divided into your 3 years in the college.
#68 to #64 - kiksi (03/22/2013) [-]
There should be selected at least 4 courses for one period. If you don't pass all the 4 courses in period, the presence obligation (not sure what it is in English but in Finnish this thing is called läsnäolovelvollisuus) is not fulfilled and you should get some kind of notification about it. And if this happens too many times, then you should be expelled since they see it as you don't go to school enough and you're not interested about the whole thing. I don't know how many notifications you need before they can expel you, but I know one guy who got kicked out this year because of the amount of his absence.
