Interesting Fact - Education

In Finland children do not have to undergo any formal tests and teachers are allowed to teach whatever and however they wish as long as they meet very general learning objectives set by Finland’s National Board of Education.

(The only formal, national test is the university matriculation exam: a set of four open-ended exams that are based on problem-solving skills rather than subject mastery.

Although most students who go on to university take this exam, it is not required for graduation from upper secondary school or even for university admissions

Imagine that!  No fear, just learning.)
