There are people in the American education policy world who just looove Finland’s school system. The mantra: Finnish schools aren’t test-driven. They revere teachers. And there are no private schools. (Whether or not the Finnish educational system is a good model for the U.S. is up for debate.)
Now here’s another hint about why FInnish schools succeed: Their teachers’ lounges have built-in coffee bars and cafe tables, where the principal serves coffee and tea during breaks.
(The broader point being that Finnish school buildings are carefully designed and built to help teachers work well and students learn.)
