Seeing as our educational system is in the dumps, it seems logical to take a look at a country that excels in education and do a comparison. Look no further!!! Finland comes to the rescue…. if only America was willing to change. Competition, competition, competition. America is obsessed with competition and the idea that fierce competition creates success and that competition and success is usually defined by money. Its inherent in our political system, our economic system, and our educational system. A quality education is a right, not a privilege.
