So can the UK be like Finland?
I honestly can't see a way of breaking down the fear culture, not least because tragedies do happen with heartbreaking regularity.
British kids have far less freedom and unsupervised playtime than they need to become adventurous, healthy, inquisitive learners. I do think we could improve special education though. Paying teachers to give tutorials and employing SEN teachers instead of coordinators and consultants might result in less students being left behind. Honestly, most teaching I have observed in England has been as good as, if not better than Finnish teaching. The difference is not in the teaching, but in the students and their environment. So keep doing what you're doing. You are doing a great job!
