**Orc rolled image** They don't offer a good educational system? The fuck? "How in high hell is it an opinion?" It's an elitist system. The educational systems in those countries are fine. Stop trying to act like you're better than everybody else because it's cool to hate on America and England.

It has nothing to do with hating on America and England, the fact I've been through a good education in England doesn't sway me from the fact that I have seen what a typical school in England is like by comparison. Simple matter of fact is, they are not great, we simply don't produce enough high quality teachers, and the actual systems defined by the state (such as hours, curriculum and so forth) are just not based on the research and conclusions on the best methodology for teaching produced world wide. I extrapolate to the fact that America's education system isn't great either based on the opportunities provided in America for people to become teachers, as well as both first hand accounts and those statistics your seemingly refuted earlier.

America and England do not have fine education systems, if they did, the population of both countries would be able to achieve much more. The fact that England's population doesn't fit with the number of high-skill jobs on offer in the country means that we simply end up with others taking those jobs - not that I consider that bad, I personally don't see a problem with controlled immigration in to England (obviously not just free reign immigration - that wouldn't be good for any economy). I would also argue the same is true for America, at least from accounts of people I work with who live in America.

Both countries definitely do offer good education for some, especially the rich, but not for all. This is a fundamental problem with governments, who should have realised by now that educating their young is the only way to ensure success of the country in the decades to come.

**Orc rolled image** Because it is entirely an opinion. It is statistically not a whole lot better than some places. It's like the whole "free" schooling and healthcare debates. People can say it's better all they want, but that's their opinion.
#231 - catephant (06/11/2014) [-]
I need only say one thing: Human Development Index (look at the education component of it). It isn't statistically hugely better than some other places, but it is a world leader in following education research advice to improve the system it offers its students, and for that reason it has a right to say that it is just that.

It would be wrong if the poster said something along the lines of "Finland's education is better than all other education", it does't, it just compares it to that of countries that would like to think they offer good education who don't, such as that of America and the UK.

#225 - catephant (06/11/2014) [-]
Opinions? How in high hell is it an opinion? The fact Finland has such a great education system is statistics, simple and pure. You cannot argue with statistics, even if some idiots try (one great current example being Robert E. Murray, who is so stuck up his own arse, he values making money as more important than accepting the statistics that we are fucking up the world we live in - to the extent he's willing to sue organisations for following suggested actions to lessen issues like climate change).
