Finland's education system

The classroom size of science courses is limited to 16 students. This is so students can do actual in-person experiments in the lab.

The only mandatory test is taken when students are 16 years old.

There aren’t any separate classrooms for accelerated learning or special education. All students are taught in the same classroom.


I think that Finland's education system is the best in the world. There are very low class sizes which means that each student would receive more attention and would be able to do things such as science experiments alone without doing it in groups which means that they would learn better.

It is also less stressful. There is no homework until students are teenagers which means that all work is done in class for the first several years of school. There are no grades for the first few years in school as well. School hours are also short.

Should other countries have a similar system as this? It seems to be cheaper than the education system in Finland so it is practical to test it out.

That sounds good to me. Too large a number of students in class prevents effective teaching.
