 Here is an interesting read on how Education is approached in Finland.

"Ever since Finland, a nation of 5.5 million, that does not start formal education until age 7 and scorns homework and testing until well into the teenage years, scored at the top of a well-respected intertnational test in 2001 in math, science and reading, it has been an object of fascination among American educators and policy makers.

Finlandophilia only picked up when the nation placed close to the top again in 2009, while the United States ranked 15th in reading, 19th in math and 27th in science. "

good reading!
