My mother in law is from Finland, and I learned from her that a college education is also paid for by the government. talk about equity.

"...students start formal schooling at age seven after participating in extensive early-childhood and preschool programs focused on self-reflection and social behavior, rather than academic content."

Are our current K-12 stakeholders willing to to turn K-1 over to other preschool programs?


I notice Norway is not mentioned. Any reason?

I dunno, Zarwen. Maybe the delegation only visited the countries mentioned, although there is broad mention of "Scandinavian" practices in the article. So one would assume that Norwegian schools are included in the Scandinavian model.

You are right, Terry. I looked up your link to the article. The delegation visited Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen. Maybe they just didn't get invited to Oslo.
