Finland’s Revolutionary Education System


that phil is educational system yes so
so fascinating so about three decades ago at fill-in uh… has educational system that’s
doing terribly and eight local running okay what do we
do about straight we are revamp the whole thing and they decide for whatever reason you
know uh… that the republicans here would call them you know no good social
susah but there were a focus on equality what
kind of that’s crazy that about and it’s not a quality results that
because they didn’t even uh… do testing on doing testing until age of
sixty so no standardized testing sir equality of opportunity stay said no
matter if you’re poor or or richard milk are objective is to reach equality of opportunity and
by the way in this amazing i would make republican has exploded in the u_s_
uh… we are not uh… going to due to you but we’re not going
to try for cuts already like in an america that’s like there are no we just want everybody to
have a fair chance right patron of competitiveness within their schools yes
i thought missing so much pressuring them you got to be the best you can have a
stick that’s why not i was like this and i sat so i can tell when this setback well let you know discover what you’re passionate about and follow your dreams okay now begets crazy yet they wait to see

nobody ok kiss have we ordered by various things no private schools alone everybody has to the public school and but what accommodation are not going
to no matter how come get this we’re gonna pair teachers a decently for the and we’re gonna require them now
that i think they are ready to start a dentist sydney subtract uh… but you know it’s uh… if the
film was so they get health care et cetera said and also keep in mind the
changed with the role of teachers they became much more prestigious like he was and it wasn’t like how your
teacher whatever your big making a false and i was like all my greatest teacher
massively this in our mind exploding teachers or not it’s harder to get into
the school to be a teacher than it is to get into school to be a lawyer or a
doc any opinion as to series and then they could become a teacher and
its revered in the this aside okay no sanitize says until you’re sixty uh… and the list goes on a so they’re
not even participating in the international task as they like tester
earth are silly which i find out what these kids want to
do and and give them an opportunity to do a
well right uh… in in the beginning of the two
thousand news two thousand two thousand one the not like you know what that says
that in the case of the hand here callout it was a piece of study the
pieces that it has okay so let’s let’s andrew them in there
and see what happens if we don’t expect number one in the world were one in the world and it’s a lot less than a foot unit
that this thought it must have an accident we’re not even
trying pretzels which is try to get to people if air tix right they retested several times not that
you’re in is suing years consistently top three in the world others are saying of course south korea
where we’re gonna kiss of death for particular riyadh everyday and
succeeding and that’s a different way of doing it and look and that certainly don’t want
to argue about what’s a better way to go so endemic the guy who’s ahead of their
education at the department at the base their
education issue comes on like this in the u_s_ physical every store in atlanta he’s explain americans we don’t do
competition americans are quite so you had to compete the noble tweet no we do cooperation like the payment so i would be a private
schools up to though we don’t have private schools is that ok so anyway
what do private schools critic middle but we don’t have private
schools like he’s exploiting the system and it’s not getting into their head lighted areas like that so anyway the bottom line is what uh… more competition right it’s like go there’s not a lot of mine
is exactly opposite of the bottom line and so and he’s written a book about it entered and they say america’s trying to learn from the finished one of the of course
tackle wind in new york times coverage of that story so different article they
quote that some of buddy from a conservative think tanks a all you can’t you can’t do it if it is
model here are the sale is a totally different situation uh… that you know whatever one there
much smaller mobile we do it you justify states allow
compared to one of our states about the same size conduct disaster double the world right uh… okay that’s
all for now and i’d love this code word they have a more homogeneous assigned you know that missus code word for well
they’re all what a cable so forcier are really so that you don’t know what
which is a next-door neighbor same exact savings acct homogeneous society they use american model disaster this
core near the bomb so what now what now is we’re never gonna check no behind you
and our america is a story you know what they say well our education system right pasand rivals but it’s a vessel in the
world here but we made in the past year like number
fifty remember nineteen your disasters of the holistic worst you were set

  1. "standardized testing is to crude to be used" don't take my word for it, but the creater of standardized testing saying "these test are to crude to be used."

  2. What the heck?? Why are you guys competing????? It's like you want to make sure that students get anxious and don't learn anything…

  3. If I was old enough I would have a live TV broadcast trying to get school systems changed in the U.S.A. I may be in 7th grade, but I know what's going on. We're having disasters that could have easily been avoided. I'm debating running for president in 2040 (if the United States hasn't been destroyed yet).

  4. "We're not going to try for excellence." That's why math lessons were really boring until the 9th grade. You don't really have to pay much attention to get straight A's.

  5. I live in France. The school day starts at 8 and finishes at 5, sometimes 6 in the secondary level. Long lunch. (3 ,hours when my kids were in nursery!) loads of homework, loads of stress. under international scores France doesn't do too well. Teachers are highly educated but very poorly paid and surprisingly there's a great shortage. Education is free and most private schools are very cheap by international standards.

  6. I'm currently studying 10th grade here in the Philippines. I've been schooled abroad my whole life, and I have to say there's a difference with the way they teach, how the time is spent, and how they bring knowledge to one's mind; but all's the same with the concept of competition. Everyone's mind is set on competing and climbing on each other to be the best, and that's something that will be inevitable. Basically, we're all fucked.

  7. I'm a Finn, and I have to clear out some of the things said here:

    1. We DO have homework. Maybe not as much as in other countries and not everyone does it, but generally students are issued at least about an hour's worth of homework a day.

    2. We DO have private schools. They have to abide by the same curricular standards as the public schools and don't really differ much from the public schools. They generally have pretty low tuition fees (about 800$/year) but are mostly funded by the government. They just don't receive funding on the municipal level.

    3. Teachers AREN'T paid as well as doctors or lawyers. They are, however, well unionized in Finland and they still make a pretty decent living. Teachers also enjoy benefits such as the longest paid annual leave (over two months). Teachers also have at least a master's degree and the position is seen as relatively prestigious. Teacher education programs are also not the easiest ones to get into.

    4. We DO have tests. At the end of each semester teachers conduct tests on the subjects learned. They, however, aren't standardized and are mainly composed by the teachers. At the end of middle school there are also tests that determine what type of high schools you can go to. At the end of high school they also take the national matriculation exams (the ones that go to senior high schools or gymnasia). Universities also have entrance exams

  8. During my second year in junior high school I spent half a year as an exchange student in Germany and I can't really say that the schools were really that much different from the we have in Finland.

    Some differences still existed: In Finland the students are on a familiar basis with the teachers, whereas in Germany teachers demand a certain formal modicum of respect. The school that I was attending in Germany was supposed to be more oriented towards natural sciences and in chemistry they were just learning things about organic chemistry that we were already taught years ago in junior high school. I ended up tutoring some of my German classmates.

    Hohenlohe Gymnasium Öhringen, Ihr seid die beste! 🙂

  9. forget school, now u learn everything u need here at the, www. mather of fact, it would solve all of the eduction monetary problems of any system or any child..u goverments all they need to do is create labs where students of any age go and practice n create science models of any thing they r studing at home any time they want and after they master they own education,then in those same labs the teachers can give them its degrees after they paSS A TEST,,see no bull,no books ,no expenses to go every day to school, no need to buy so many clothes to be at school no lunch no teachers to pay for nothing,just study u subjets n line go practice at the labs then get u damn degree,, uupss im sorry 4 that word..see how easy it is..of curse u all know education is a bussiness nothing alse.. peace n love my childs

  10. When you hate finnish school and then you watch this. Im like. "Say what ever. You dont wanna come to this noisy and so fuckin loud school"

  11. I'm really glad someone posted this video.  I took my children out of public school(American public school) in 2016.  They are thriving because of the  methods used in homeschooling are very similar to that of the Finnish.  I don't want my children to feel pressured to compete…I want them to know their purpose in life and be comfortable and happy with who they are.  Homeschooling allows the parent and the child to established how they want to learn more in depth.

  12. I've attended both private school and public school in America and to be honest, I preferred the public schooling. There's less pressure, and more freedom. And you're not paying 10 – 20 grand a year for it.

  13. pisa test 2015 results – http://www.businessinsider.com/pisa-worldwide-ranking-of-math-science-reading-skills-2016-12

    In Estonia, we have the same freaking system as Finland and in every subject we are better than USA. Estonia is like a little brother to finland, we work together and develope together.

    Every right right headed Estonian and Finn knows that USA is brain washed. And we also know that most intelligent folks in USA are usaly people who have served in military. why? Well because they travel. They can see around the box what MOST folks in USA can´t do. USA is not nr1 not even close to it.

    Hillary the warlord, and dumpTrump were your 2. best candidates for President. What does that say about you USA. NR1 NR1 NR1… goooshhh…

  14. I like how most people perceived socialism is bad but, most socialist countries are always on top 10 in most charts including; most transparent country, country with the best school system, happiest country in the world, etc….

  15. I want to go to Finland. The education system is ruining my life. I was never a kid, it was always just pressure and stress and expectations. I can never rest, and I'm desperate. So if America believes it is the best country in the world, then how can they have such a poor education system? I absolutely despise it's education system!

  16. Finland: Best edu system…we dont need or want competition. U.S.: Our edu system is mediocre… WE ARE NUMBER ONE! (credit to the lazy town song lol)

  17. Does this guy not realize that Republicans have been fighting for voucher systems…..exactly the system used in Finland.

  18. Why doesn't the American government do a study to find the top 10-20 best educational systems in the world and how different children learn? Then choose 10 school systems in each state across different social and economic lines to test the models and find out which are the best. Lastly encourage the use of the best. If higher and moderately performing school districts do not want to participate in the study, then offer the involvement to the worst performing schools in the nation.

  19. More bullshit from a couple of bullshit spewing idiots… https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/overall-full-list

  20. Also free university education. Government actually pays the students so that they would not have to work while studying. It's a bit different culture than America has.

  21. Just one comment' Finland, Norway, Sweden…are NOT all "white" countries. Was there a few times….These countries have experienced a huge influx of immigrants in the last 30 years. They are also taking more refugees that the USA takes. Also college is completly free… No mandated preschool but high quality child care and preschool are available and basically free !!!

  22. I kindof respect you for that video. BTW Norway has even more trust, they have just shitty policy. So monoculture play a big role, but is not sufficent.
    It would be even better, if it was not compulsory(meaning mandatory). Who says parents cant teach their kids? If you dont need to pay taxes for schools, more money stay in the pocket and maybe you can afford one parent to stay home. I wonder how it compares to kids who were homeschooled, or unschooled. In like happiness, social skills, conflict resolution skills, enterpreneurship, relationships etc.

  23. This guy is a liberal. Why is he automatically allowed to put words in the mouths of conservatives. We all know our educational institutions are all liberal taught and funded. Cenk is the worse kind of person just dismissing the other sides view and saying it disagrees with their view, with no responsibility of what he says.

  24. We do have tests but not those super big ones that has "everything you had learned" in theme until end of high school.

  25. I want to move to Finland when I was 5 so I would have to go to school at 2 years later and it would be amazing I'd get to see my cousins all the time.

  26. I went to school in Finland and can tell that one thing that is a complete lie on this video: The system was NOT horrible before either. I came here 25 years ago and Finland was already ranked number ONE in the world in their educational system. To some people it's hard to admit the certain things just always remain so!

  27. We compete in the real world. Yea, the school system here sucks, but because the damn bureaucracy that keeps things the same. Competing to be the best works.we just need to compete on real-world stuff rather than chemistry or gender studies.

  28. Changing peoples perspective on things is one of the hardest things you can do in life. Peoples egos won't allow them to admit they're wrong, even if changing means they'll do better.

  29. To implement such a system, the Americans would have to give up something they don't want to give up. Even if you don't take the schooling system into account, Finland is still one of the most developed countries in the world. One should have a look on what the Finnish spend their money on and the Americans don't.

    Norway is a bad example too. US is a far cry from any of the Scandinavian countries, or even eastern European countries, like it or not.

  30. Equal results = Communism
    Equal Opportunity = The American Dream
    I strongly disagree with banning private schools though.

  31. The Norwegians are more like the finns actually, we don't have tests that counts untill the last year at school(we only have exsams in 8-10 grade and only those in 10th grade counts. 8th- and 9th grade are only test years), and we don't bring them too school untill they are 6. I really think we in Norway should do just like Finland cause we are really close, we just should try to not compete that much.

  32. American education people!! Finland is neither a similar size to kentucky and it's not "next door" to Norway per say since Sweden is jammed in between the two nations.

  33. Im not really convinced.
    It sounds like they are learning nothing and then be the best of the world and they didnt even expect that.
    Something seems fishy here.

  34. No private schools allowed? Oh, the Government wants to hold the education monopoly so that kids will do, say, and think whatever "BIG BROTHER" tells them!

  35. The homogenous model has nothing to do with "they're all white." They are mostly the same race, yes. But also there's less of a wealth disparity, and mostly they're the same faith- you really should learn to look past race.

  36. Im Finnish the Finnish educational system is STUPID and produces educated dummies with no social skills who all want to be Artists, musicians why not astronauts, then they wake up as adult babies at 18 and expect jobs to fall at their feet, alot of student go on to be higher educated dummies with no applicable skills, in student debt for years and broken dreams and dependant on the state

  37. You are too simple minded young turk. All about attention then seeing the whole picture. It was hard to listen to this simple understanding of a complex issue. Has nothing to do with either side the crazy congress. Need to brush up on the world more than 10 mins before the show.

  38. NB NB TEXTING….WTF?? were the person texting this D R U N K? or are they a measurement of the educational level on americans? 😛 Kentuccy becomes conducting… seriously… ?? and there are so many more… L O L !!

  39. I am happy to see that I am not the only person who feels uncomfortable in present day education education system ….there are many more and what they think and do is right….

  40. Meanwhile Finland avoids competitiveness and the U.Ks whole marking system is you can only pass if other people have to fail

    Something like this
    Top 4% Grade Nine (our A*)
    4-14% Grade eight (our A)
    15 – 25 grade seven
    And this goes on till you get to the bottom so people have to bad and fail for anyone to pass it could be that you get 200 out of 208 but 50% of people got even a mark or two higher, You now failed and you may to be tested next year or sometimes that’s it you failed .

  41. Then Finland got Juha Sipilä as prime minister and all that success is long gone. Juha Sipilä is the Donald Trump of Finland.

  42. My dad thinks finish school system is the worst and all people in Finland are uneducated and there is not a stable government and every one is an alcoholic
    And whenever I prove him wrong he punishes me badly and shouts at me that im stupid retarded unable to do anything and that they will kick me out of the house
    Even though im in the HTL in austria that is a school for Hotel and tourist management and for cooking.

  43. Finland now is far from all white society. Especially among those younger ones we have very much of different origins. Somehow we still grade high on those international tests… 😆😎
