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.

My American public school:
-No uniforms
-No entrance exams
-No fees to actually be in the school, but fees for the school year (quite reasonable though)
-No idea what league tables/ofsted inspections are, therefore my school doesn't have them
-Kids decide for themselves what classes to take, I'm in higher level classes myself because I want to become an actuary
-About 70% of each grade is in the lowest possible level of each class though
-Refer to teachers as Mr./Mrs., it's more about respect for the teacher than anything else
-Even in my higher level classes, probably about an hour-90 mins homework each night, but usually no more than half an hour per class
-7 50-minute periods each day + lunch (half an hour), four core subjects (math, science, english, social studies) and three of anything from study hall to underwater basket weaving to Ancient Greek
-My school has the 4th largest enrollment in the state (2500+ students)
-It's probably about 80% white, I rarely see anyone who can't make friends because of how diverse everyone's interests are
-How would you rate my school from 1-10?

I think that the fact that a whole country upholds these rules is pretty special. I mean, not all American schools follow this policy right? You just mentioned one school while OP mentioned all schools within an entire country, that is a big difference to me.

My opinion on the matter: Children are 'forced' to choose way too much for their age when it comes to the future of his/her life. At the age of 12 I had to choose the difficulty of my education for the upcoming 6 years while I didn't even know what would happen. It's ******* ridiculous.

If you're in middle school then you have it easy, wait until high school and you can cross off whether or not you can choose to be in an easier system, you MUST call teachers by their last name and you will have a ******* of homework.

That is, if you go to a public school worth anything.

I'm going to be a senior in High School next year and my school is seen as one of the best in my state. The State is Vermont though so we are very liberal and theres not as much competition for something like that cause we are so small. I'm sure schools in other states or even in vermont have it harder than us.

You just skipped all the important details about how their entire infrastructure is based upon the fact that the system is liquid. People are not enforced to do anything in general.
Just like Norwegian prison's, we rehabilitate people instead of enslaving them and trap them (in 99.99999% of the cases, breivik will stay in jail forever).
Also, what american school you go to makes a huge difference.
The YouTuber "Woodysgamertag" had the ********* grades i have heard of, but thanks to being able to go to a good school, he got his **** together and at least got good education going for him.

Down the rabbit hole ******, don't skim the surface.

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

my little brother was treated as a 'special' child at school even though he only had mild problems he was treated as a baby when he was in grade 5. He actually ended up getting similar grades to mine in high school and I did quite well. He did poorly in public years because he was treated as a retard and therefore felt that he was.

By surrounding someone with certain types of people, they become those people.

when I was in public school (America), I was put into the "gifted" classes because I had an above-average IQ.

it was awesome, because we were learning algebra when I was only in like 4th or 5th grade (so 10 or 11 years old, right?), and they generally stimulated our creativity and taught us to use our intelligence the best we could.

when I got to high school, we still had our gifted class for my freshman year, but after that, they cancelled it, and fired the lady in charge of it (they later re-hired her and made her a secretary).

what kind of school destroys a program designed to stimulate intelligent kids, and help the gifted and intelligent youth better themselves? like.. what the ****, man? THAT'S WHAT THE SCHOOL IS DESIGNED TO DO.

also, public schools are starting to assimilate the mentally challenged kids into the regular-ed classes, which is honestly detrimental to their development, and it slows down everyone's learning.
(my mother worked as a special-ed instructor for a long time, and now she teaches freshman history for several regular classes, a retarded/ED class, and an honors class, so she sees how the assimilation affects how they learn)

oh yeah, my point was that treating everyone the same is bad when they simply aren't the same.

god, I hated sitting in class with all the "normal" kids.
I had to take a regular English class, and my god, the "normal" kids were so. *******. stupid.

there was a kid in my astronomy class who thought the Moon was a star... and he was "normal."

I'm so glad those people don't make it to college.

You tried a lot less hard because of it, I bet. This is why I hate equality in education.

In my school system, you could get into harder classes based on what you did the year previous. My first year they put me into college prep english (a level above the stupids in general, where most normal kids are) because my English teachers in middle school were dickwads.

The next year I was in honors, and I made it into the advanced preparation class by senior year (the only year they HAVE ap english). Passed it with a B+.

The problem was though that by my senior year the guidance councilors were forcing teachers into tossing everyone, regardless of skill level, into advanced preparation. So my AP teacher had to deal with tossing them back out for the first quarter.

This only works when the majority of people is on the same level. Yes there will be a few tard but they wont draag everyone down cause there is a few. Yes there will be a few geniuses and they will still achieve whatever because they will be working hard and doing other work outside of class. The system in america is failing because the majority are tards AND they keep lowering the standards to make tards normal. This means the average ids get dragged down as well. The smart ones well they do the same things the smart kids everywhere do and get ahead.

Thats actually true though. I remember I was in an Academic Algebra 2 class, and I was 1 of 4 kids in there that wasn't black (1 other was white and 2 others were latino) and every day our black teacher would try and teach us about algebra but these ignorant black kids would always start arguments with her, and complain about taking a quiz or something like that. I remember I had to go to a study session with that teacher after school just so I could pass the class.

Damn, this is actually true. The Finnish school system allows teachers to actually punish the kids if they act like little ********* (correct me if I'm wrong), not let them go outside and play football, like here in Norway. The teachers here are weakhearted, and they fear of being being called racists and such, because most of the trouble making brats are in fact foreigners. I remember having an Albanian ******* in my class in junior high who acted like a retarded gangster ****** thug bitch. He seriously ruined every single lecture he was present, basically ruined them for all my classmates. He's often sent hopelesly to the principal, but when to play table tennis instead.
HE'S A FOOKING RETURD.

Well I feel like it's fairly obvious that Finland is not nearly as much of a melting pot as the US is. From what I have read, the Finnish largely resent immigrants as many of them don't bring additional productivity to the nation.

But I don't think that you can argue that the original comment is ENTIRELY wrong. It's actually true, but the reason that it is true is far more cruel and disturbing than this comment in itself.

I'm not going to say that that is not true, because it does have some truth behind it.

In Finland, the schools that have a large amount of immigrants are doing much worse than the "whiter" schools.

that being said, for example, Norway's immigration situation is pretty much the same as Finlands, there ain't all that many ******* there, but still in the PISA tests norway has always been below Finland en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programme_for_International_Student_Assessment#Results

They live in black areas. Schools are ghetto because ******* attend them. I live in a mostly white district with pretty much no blacks and the average SAT score here is 2100.

Blacks make their areas into what they are. If there weren't gangs everywhere and they didn't lurk at night breaking into houses, it would be a much better place.

The problem is you're comparing Finland with the US. The two countries are very different both in size, influence, government and culture. Finland might not have colored immigrants, but they have immigrants from former Soviet countries and other poorer countries.

I think you should take a look at how the finnish school is build up instead of blurring out racial slurs and create stereotypes.

Before I start let me say that there are exceptions to what I'm saying, but this is how it works majority of the time.

It's true because of how our culture is right now. It's cool to be uneducated and to waste all your money on clothes and ****** rims for your car. It's cool to **** around and drop out of high school. It's cool to make fun of the one white kid at your school.

This last reason is the reason you don't see many whites in black ghettos. In many areas, blacks are just as racist as many whites. Racism is picked up by children from their parents as they grow, and as there's already more blacks in poor neighborhoods than whites, the white kids get picked on.

When the white kids get picked on and singled out, it makes them not want to live in that environment for the rest of their lives, and the way out is basically handed to them through the school system. The thing is, it's just as easy for the black kids too. They just don't bother doing good most of the time. They have no reason to leave the ghetto. They get welfare, all their friends are there, and the way they see it going out to actually make something of themselves is a lot of work for something they don't really want.

So in the end, the white kids go off to college, the black kids stay in the ghetto and live off welfare, and in time their parents die, they have kids, and their kids pick up their morals and values. The next generation of blacks does the same thing as their parents for the most part, and the negro community is stuck in a self perpetuating cycle where they never make anything of themselves, their kids pick up their morals and never make anything of themselves, and most blacks are stuck in ghettos and low income areas that only become worse and worse as time goes on.

tl;dr, black people are poor because they're too cool for school, but not too cool for welfare.

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.

At my school we a have dress code to polo shirts only, and they must be solid grey, yellow, white, or maroon. As for pants, it's usually khaki pants or cargo shorts, usually a khaki or similar color. I really don't think it's that bad but dear god, the bitching people do about the dress code is ridiculous. The only argument that I agree with is the fact that polos are hot as hell and probably only a fourth of the classrooms have air conditioning

I know that feeling. I was so ******* god damn happy when I was doing my GCSEs and moved up to the top set amongst pupils who actually want to learn. Then during the final year, my science class suddenly became somewhat mixed ability (or they just incredibly lowered the standard) where some of the ******* were in my class. They were so god damn disruptive and at times, just not a good environment.
