Everett Hill Posted 3 months ago Revolution in Education. Let's talk specifics... What can we really do? If memory serves me correctly, it took the Finnish 20 plus years to get their education system in order. 3 - 5 years is an ambitious goal. Not to mention their schools are smaller, kids don't have to attend until 7, students are held to a high standard and that is supported by the parents. School is about learning not childcare. That is a deeply rooted philosophy that must change in the states to improve.
