Marveling At (More) Successful Nazis...
Nowadays it's trendy for Big Education fools to sing the praises of Finland's government school system.
I'd like y'all to check out this article - What Americans Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success.
Now there's a lot that's *not covered* in all these studies that exalt Finland's schools. For example, how many kids grow up in broken homes? What percentage of kids are *daycared* rather than spend their formative years around complete-sentence-wielding parents? Not to mention the ranking process itself.
But I don't want to talk about that right here, right now.
Watch this interpretation of the article....then the title of this blog post will make sense:
Yeah, that guy is indeed a blithering idiot.
Though do you see what I mean? How the example of *Finland* is just a launch pad for planners and their agitprop?
Ironically, that fat tool is a graduate of UPenn's Wharton undergraduate program (4 years ahead of me at Penn)...
And Wharton undergrad is the most competitive (intro courses graded on a curve, 50% get C's!), most capitalistic school in America!
