Why Are Finnish Kids So Smart? | viviana | Scoop.it
For years, Finland has scored at the top of every category and has increasingly been held up as a model for educational reform. But, why? Producer Eric Bombicino explores Finland's unique education system.


"The Finnish system's success is built on the idea that: "less can be more." This may appear counter-intuitive to many within other educational systems in which standards and effectiveness are measured in standardised data and evidence trails. The absence of corrosive competition and an egalitarian ethos inherent in the Finnish culture has surely played a role in shaping this very impressive system."
