I love how this contradicts the "Inequality is real" link to "Broader, Bolder approach to education;" Quality pre-k education helps prepare students, latest statistics reveal that ages 3-7 determine greatest success rates, hah! The fins just bypassed all of that.

Where's the mystery? It`s a cultural thing. Look at the huge amounts of illegal and legal immigration that takes in this country. Now look at the immigration into Finland. Now look at the way the majority of the cultures that immigrate here, view education.
I can tell you this, if we the majority of our immigrants were Asian, we wouldn`t have this problem.

I think it's a lot easier to maintain an "even, fair education for all" when you have a homogenous society that isn`t exactly welcoming of immigrants... from "migrationinformation.org"... While the proportion of foreigners to native Finns has increased steadily since 1990, it is still considerably less than in Germany, Sweden, or Switzerland, where the percentages of the foreign born are above 10 or even 20 percent.

Finland has a population that is half of London in a country twice the size of England. Additionally they have a good work ethic and are live in a largely homogeneous society. Compare this to England, an over-stretched school sythem with ever-growing class sizes. Bad behaviour and bad results excused because of percieved 'discrimination` and a powerful union that resists all change and is more concerned with furthering its marxist agenda than improving genuine standards (as oppposed to making exams easier each year).

So to sum up the show... everyone participates and everyone takes pride in participating.
