Education in Finland: How Le Frehindi can help…

They know enough who know how to learn “.

-Henry Adams

The importance of the education system could be best understood by the above lines. A well-planned education system serves as a building block for a nation. Our team Lefrehindi has a dynamic approach towards the education system.

When we talk about education we must include education to be accessible to everyone. The perpetuating view of education as a rare commodity is a downward spiral, not only for individuals but also for the nation as a whole.  It is not only a personal endeavour to become educated, being an educated country is of national interest. Education should be designed in such a way that young people should become socially, academically, culturally and intellectually developed. The strength of the pillar of education depends on school education, where the educator plays an important role. Be a part of the educators’ training at Lefrehindi.

Why Finland has the best education system?

In this article, we are going to talk about the world’s best education system. The Finnish education system has been consistently awarded as the number one education system in the world for many years. Finnish school system understands the education system in the best way.

Focus on creating a cooperative environment: The first and foremost point it does not create a competitive environment rather cooperative environment is the norm. It surely bets on highly competent teachers with a masters degree in the subject. But, doesn’t worry about artificial merit-based systems. There are no lists of top-performing schools or teachers.

No standardized tests: They do not have standardized tests as compared to the Indian school system with lots of exams conducted in schools. Instead, they have the ” National Matriculation Exam “, which is a voluntary test for students at the end of an upper-secondary school. A student in Finland is graded individually by their teacher. Also, the overall progress of different schools is maintained by the Ministry of Education.

Free and compulsory education: Finland provides for free and compulsory education in the true sense. Children start school when they are seven years old. They are not chained to compulsory education instead given free rein in the developing childhood years and opts to prepare their children for the real world. Also, the educational institutions have a wide range of facilities available for students which include free school meals, access to health care, free transportation and school materials, psychological counselling, etc.

Vocational Courses: Finland’s education includes vocational education, a three-year program that provides for diverse training with a range of courses for various careers.
Finnish school system understands what constitutes a happy, harmonious and healthy student and learning environment.

Co-curricular activities: Finnish educational curriculum puts a big emphasis on dance, music, painting, sports and outdoor activities. It explains the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to education and includes the concept of practical learning. Students usually only have a couple of classes a day and have time to enjoy recreational activities.

Co-curricular activities are an important part of the Finnish educational curriculum.

According to the OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), students in Finland have the least amount of outside work and homework than any other student in the world. Also, Finnish students score higher than most of their peers on international assessment tests.

Apart from these features to be taken from the Finnish education system. We can draw a conclusion that the Finnish education system focuses on less stress, less unneeded regimentation and more caring. Students need to be functional so they can operate at the best of their abilities. The key to the success of the Finish Education System is a more relaxed and multi-disciplinary designed education system. To know more watch the video on our youtube page.

A comparison with the Indian education system

Education is limited to what is there in the textbooks, lack of practical approach is the chief flaw of the education system in India. More global issues should be discussed and Classroom2Classroom should be promoted. Gender discrimination is one of the other factor leading to an outdated education system in India. As said by Dr B.R. Ambedkar, ” I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved “. The cost of higher education is one of the other most important factors. More government policies should focus on free and accessible education to all classes of society.

Conclusion

As a matter of fact, the educational system needs to be modified in different aspects. Along with the theoretical concepts which help in the basic understanding of the subject. A practical approach should be developed in students by including more case study situations in every subject, science practicals should be introduced in primary sections under proper guidance. Today’s generation is more addicted to social media. Hence, e-learning should be encouraged. Moreover, education is not only about notebook learning, more exchange programs, internships, but co-curricular activities should also be introduced and encouraged. Lefrehindi team ensures to make new amendments in its program designed for students and teachers. For instance: Covid – 19 blocked the way for the cultural trips, students were restricted to the online classrooms. Hence the concept of a virtual tour is introduced which not only keeps the student’s interest but also provides them with exposure to French culture.
