There is a country where students start school at a later age, take fewer classes, enjoy a 3-month summer break, spend less time in school per day, have barely any homework and are barely tested. There is a country where teachers are respected professionals, quickly receive tenure, are rarely evaluated, earn average salaries and have a strong Union. There is a country where schools receive modest funding, develop their own curriculum, research and adopt new technologies, have no achievement gap and leave no child behind. This country ranks at the top of the world by almost every measure. Welcome to… Finland.

I´m so jealous, it´s a pity that Finland is so cold!
Equality and equity education sound wonderful!
I´m astonished at how teachers, who are well trained to do the best work and do it together, motivate and encourage the capacity to think and resolve different situations.
In addition to that, I´m amazed at how important networks or social nets are to improve Knowledge, explore and create new information. Students using the technology for their learning as moodle is a good way. Fortunately in Spain we can share our knowledge this way.
Finally, it´s fantastic that school education system is based on TRUST.

Sorry!, what I mean is that here in Spain we share with Finland moodle as a tool to learn and teach…..
