The Education presentation was extremely interesting. To be honest, I think the education success rates have a lot to do with early education. The fact that students are not actually graded until middle school years, and aren't taught reading or writing until around age 7 in the education system is a brilliant idea. I liked the comment that it seems the education system introduces children the will to learn, and explore at a very young age in nature and in the classroom. The early emphasis on bringing the kids outside, exploring music, drawing, etc. Finnish education really seems like an efficient, methodical process.
