In the United States of America, the no child left behind policy is leaving 40% of its kids behind.
In Finland there is a 0% dropout rate because no students are ever left behind.
This Ted Talk is fascinating. I only wish Canada could have a more well-rounded education system where teachers were given more flexibility when it comes to curriculum and the support they need for their students for future success. I also think post-secondary education should be free – but that’s another story!
