And here how Finland plans to change its educational system

_http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/finland-schools-subjects-are-out-and-topics-are-in-as-country-reforms-its-education-system-10123911.html

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

Excellent article. I've seen a video lately (couldn't find it now) by a French educator who's very critical of the "education system" in the West. Basically according to him, the elite deliberately dumbed down education for the masses to have an edge on them, but in doing so, they dumbed down even the education reserved for the so-called elites in elite schools. I commented to a work collaborator last week that there are three types of politicians in the West today: the stupid, the corrupt, and the stupid and corrupt. And that's without counting the psychopath. It's the citizen who pays of course for trusting such a beautiful selection of the best in these categories.
