Finland to Become the First Country in World to Exclude All School Subjects
For many years, Finland is in the top position of international league tables for numeracy and literacy as it is one among the countries having finest education system in the world.
Now, the authorities decided to go through a real revolution in their education system in schools.
Marjo Kyllonen, head of the Department of Education in Helsinki explained the changes:
According to this new revolution, students will study events and phenomena as an alternative of individual subjects.
The main thing in this is children have to choose the topic by themselves which they want to study. But while selecting a topic, they have to think about their capabilities and future.
With this change, traditional format of teacher-student communication will also change. Students don’t have to wait for their turn to answer a question in class; instead they will work altogether in small groups.
Near about 70% of teachers in Finland have already started the initial work in line with the new system and as a result they will get a hike in their payment.
