Finnish Teens Are Among the Smartest in the World: Here's Who's to Blame! by Rihanna Mistry
Finnish teenagers are among the smartest in the world – and I blame their teachers! In Finland, teaching is a prestigious career. They often teach the same students for 5 years and are left to their own devices, unlike most countries which run a strict curriculum. Schools are very basic and they don’t even encourage extracurricular activities, even sports.
And did you know Finnish students outperform their peers from other countries? Did you also know that Finnish students don't even start school until the age of 7? That means each child gets lots of one-on-one attention in their younger years giving them a tailored learning approach. Learn more in my book, "Get Your Kids Ahead in 10 Minutes Per Day!"
