Here In Denmark everyone talks about how our system has problems and how the Finns and South Koreans are leading test scores. I think the Danes do better than Canada where I grew up, but I'm no expert. I do spend time in South Korea and Finland and people do talk about education. The South Koreans think their system is awful and ruins the lives of the children and the parents, but have no idea how to change it. The Finns like to complain about theirs, but more quietly. I suspect they are much happier than the Koreans. Finnish kids seem better adjusted than Japanese.
