(Sarcasm) Oh yeah, it's definitely okay to compare class sizes like this. It's such a great idea to compare a densely populated area to a whole country and it's a very accurate statistic.
Also, this post also fails to mention that Finnish schools have longer hours generally and that Finland's government actually cares about the level of education that it gives its students, whereas in America (I'm using America because the post above mentions it as well) education isn't emphasized as well if at all.
I agree with a lot of this post, but this post was written in a way that makes it seem that America doesn't have its **** together.

Last time this was posted, everyone in the comment section KNEW it was 						********					, fast forward a month, 80% of you are buying it. I've come to the conclusions; either the intelligent people are living, or the retarded people are coming.

You're exactly right! Because the whole world is on the same economic level and because everyone has the same form of govt. and gets along; there is no reason why we shouldn't be as smart as Finland. Also it's not like some countries have a different population than others or that all the countries listed can afford to give their oh so precious generation the very best teachers or learning facility. That would just be unthinkable. (I say sarcastically) So, you go ahead and dance on your argument that every other country is better than the one you're living in. but make sure you're argument ******* makes sense and stop complaining about how the rest of the world is terrible because of one country.

Wat.

But still, good for you Finland. That's honestly a tremendous feat; all other countries should learn from you. On behalf of like-minded Americans; congratulations.

I think the real difference between the US and Finland's education system is that teachers actually give a **** . Now take what i say with a grain of salt because i haven't researched this extensively.

In my school i see so many teachers that are apathetic towards both the subject and their students. History is a big one for this. Because History is the easiest subject to get an A in ( But hardest to actually learn something from ) a lot of previous high school football stars end up becoming history teachers that don't give a **** . To them its just something that pays the bills.

Then again i see a small handful of decent teachers that have a passion for the subject they are teaching and just want to invoke that same passion they felt in high school with there students now.

Math is just horrible teaching wise. They teach algorithms that don't make sense at first glance and don't bother teaching there students WHY x=4. They just expect there students to carry out a set of directions to finish the problem rather then have a full understanding of why each problem is solved the way it is.

For anyone that doesn't know what i am talking about read "A Mathematicians Lament" by Paul Lockhart written in 2002. Its a bit of a read at 25 pages. A topic talked about is crucial to having good teachers. And that is passion. You can't teach passion. Rather then just teach a load of horse **** that students don't care about we need to teach about WHY science and mathematics is fun and exciting and not just a chain of classes that a student has to suffer through to graduate.

My favorite quote from this mans passage is roughly "Making a subject a required part of the core curriculum is a surefire way to kill any passion or interest in a subject".

Hold the **** up..... I might be wrong, so please feel free to correct me or give me a source, because this is only something I've heard... but doesn't finland take students with low achievment or learning disabilities into different classes than the rest, and these classes did not participate in the international tests?

Cool.

A popular magazine in America rated Finland as the best country in the world.

Let's be fair, Finland has only a population of 5.404.956 people, Canada has 34.278.406, US have 314.167.157 and Germany 81,799,600.
That makes a huge different in the way of schooling.

well not to forgot that we have to study at least 3 languages (Finnish, Swedish and English) at the age of 12. And later we have opinion to learn Germany, France and/or Espanja.

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.
