An interesting perspective on education in Finland and the United States. What I took away from the video and article is the different mindset the two countries pertaining to their approach to education. In the case of Finland, it seems that consistency has yielded positive results. However, the United States has an educational system clogged by reform and political change. Perhaps it is time we take a step back from education as a political facet, and view it as a crucial institution to the country’s success.

The basic idea of educating someone does not change. The tools and techniques used to provide education are mailable. Allow teachers flexibility so that they may teach best to their students needs. The United States is not a homogenous people. We all have different learning styles and needs in the classroom. Students are more than statistics and scores.
