Finland is one of the most developed countries in the world.. The education system in this country is high. Today we will talk about the features of Finnish education.
Features of Finnish education:
1.The basic principle of secondary education in this country is that it is better to do less, but better.
2.In Finland, children up to seven years old are not forced to engage in serious studies, and in class they can relax for 10-15 minutes.
3. The main feature of Finnish schools is the lack of special educational programs for public, private or specialized schools, and standard state exams.
4.For the past ten years, the Finnish educational program has been excellent at preparing high school graduates who perform well on the PISA tests. This was not achieved immediately - Finland built a high-quality and balanced educational system from scratch.
5.Every year, the higher education system prepares highly qualified teachers for schools, which distinguishes Finland from other developed countries.
6.Finns treat teachers with great respect, and school management allows them to independently form curricula and organize class work as they see fit.
7.The results of students do not affect the salary of the teacher, as it is generally accepted that teaching is an art that cannot be assessed by school tests and grades.
8.In Finland, close interaction between university and school teachers is taken - professors from universities in the country try to get acquainted in advance with the plans of school lessons, come to classes in school, and then discuss with students and students of pedagogical faculties successes and shortcomings.
