Finnish School

School being demolished
Finnish education is famous all over the world. I have noticed it because many of my international friends have asked about Finnish education and when they have read news about it, I have been asked whether it is true. While having a walk and I point out a school to my foreign friends they have been always surprised that the Finnish schools are not surrounded by walls. They ask: How come children do not escape from the school? Also the lessons of hand craft, music and other activities outside of the normal class room is very surprising for foreigners. Though Finnish schools are not perfect. My primary school got an issue with mold and it got fully demolished after being 30 years in use. I remember my school having the issue already when I was attending but the problem was fully recognized fifteen years later.
