My American School:
-No uniforms
-No entrance Exams
-No fees
-wtf is a league table
-wtf is an ofsted inspection
-Kids can choose whether they want easier or harder classes, no one forces them to be separated
-I don't call any of my teachers by anything other than their first name unless i have a witty nickname for them.
- I rarely even have homework I need to take home with me because I can just do it in school and it never takes long.
-Finland, your school system is not that special.

"dividing children into sets based on ability is illegal"   
   
That seems unwise. The geniuses and the retards have different needs, and you're doing no one any favors by treating them the same.

You actually can start school at age six. The Finnish school system is made out to be great, but it really has some problems. One of the greater problems is that the teachers can't do much about the more troublesome kids disrupting others, and that means that the whole class can suffer as a result. On the other hand the teaching is really hands on, and if a student needs assistance they will receive it. The one thing that all these stories leave out is that homes and parents are very active during the early school years, and that means that the kids will receive support and assistance at home too. I have personally experienced the system as working, but I've also seen some of my friends being screwed over.

"Finland has topped pretty much every educational league table ever."

Sounds like a solid, cited fact.

the problem with american school systems is that they are passing people that didn't do anything. It is illegal to hold back someone in elementary. How is that fair ? If a kid can't read at a second grade level how is he expected to read at a third grade level next year? In detroit right now 80% of highschool graduates have a grade 3 reading level. How can they get jobs? How can they do anything for that matter. The worst part is most of the time the kid gets prescribed ritalin for having "adhd" when really he's just stupid. The pills remove all motivation and it makes the student worse. And sometimes they drag in a second teacher especially for that one kid who in the end disrupts the class even more. It's like their system is purposely meant to ruin future generations and to breed first class idiots to run our "workforce". I am disgusted that my taxes go to those detroit ****** welfare checks. Does anyone else agree ?

If my school didn't put people into sets based on ability I would have killed myself then and there.

When you don't force something on someone they tend to like it more...
This is no surprise to me.

This environment breeds the idea of studying and education being "fun".
Therefore more students get behind their studying and do great.

Opposed to hard core competition.
Japan is now having the problem that students are no longer going to school due to how much pressure they feel.
Kids are slowly degrading. This is actually true in other asian countries too.

Well maybe cause Finland doesn't have so many ******* ******* and sand ******* like the rest of Wetsern and Northern Europe.

Maybe you can do that with a relatively small, homogenous population but for most countries, particularly the U.S. that wouldn't work. I am tired of the 12 year old "socialists" on FJ making out Nordic countries to be paradises. They aren't. They have their issues just like everyone else. They aren't some enlightened society, decades ahead of the world.

It's an easy concept. I wonder how no country gets it.

Germany tries to improve every year in league tables and yet fails every year and thus they're making it harder, because they think: "Oh, Finnish pupils are more intelligent than ours? Better let them do harder stuff, that'll fix the problem".

Truth is: School should be made by people who aren't either complete morons or 80 years old. And I truly never got how they don't just accept former pupils (i.e. pupils who've graduaded not more than 3 years ago) to help them. They know better than those pricks.
