why finland has the best education system
The Universitas 21 Ranking is based on 24 indicators, including expenditure on higher education, diversity of institution, proportion of international students and research performance. Universitas 21 ranks higher education systems of altogether fifty countries.
In the overall ranking based on the education systems’ absolute performance, Finland improved its rank to sixth from last year’s ninth position. The top performing countries are the United States, Switzerland and United Kingdom, followed by Sweden and Denmark.
Despite calls for education reform and a continual lackluster performance on the international scale, not a lot is being done or changing within the educational system. Many private and public schools run on the same antiquated systems and schedules that were once conducive to an agrarian society. The mechanization and rigid assembly-line methods we use today are spitting out ill-prepared worker clones, rudderless adults and an uninformed populace.
Time and time again, American students continually rank near the middle or bottom among industrialized nations when it comes to performance in math and science. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) which in conjunction with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) routinely releases data which shows that Americans are seriously lagging behind in a number of educational performance assessments.
Speaking as a native.
And the teachers have wildly different ways to engage with the students. My philosophy teacher, when met with a silent and mute class that wouldn’t make any dialogue, he would take sock puppets and start keeping the classes with them. The embarrassment was enough to break the shell on bunch of immature teens.
