So, every single student these days is talking about it – there is no homework in Finland! I guess you are all already packing your bags. But, is having no homework really a smart thing? Well, according to this awesome infographic – it is!
High school graduation rate in Finland is at 93 percent, which is fantastic, especially when you compare it to 78 percent in Canada or even less (75 %) in United States of America. Finland also has the highest rate in Europe of students going to college (two of three).
They don’t have homework and they are so successful! How is that even possible? There are only twelve students on one teacher, so students get plenty of teacher interaction.
