Inside Finland's education system

This is an important interview about Finland's school system, BUT even here, the issue of poverty is ignored. Keep in mind that Finland has about 3-4% childhood poverty while the U.S. has over 20% childhood poverty. Also, keep in mind that the U.S. has over 3 million teachers--and Finland has only about 5 million citizens total. Poverty and scale MUST be considered when discussing or comparing Finland and the U.S.
