Thank you again Leo!  The slides at the end and the lesson in general are very thought-provoking.  It does sting quite a bit having come out of the US educational system that we rank so low on the scale.  But, as you said, the wealth disparity in the US is staggering and while diversity can be a great thing, it does cause social and political problems when it comes to education.  I feel this may wind up being more for us than the students.  But that's just me.

I have modified your presentation for a teacher training camp I am teaching at this winter. We are going to have a debate about the Korean education system, so I thought we'd start off with learning about Finland, as well as alternative education.

To start, teachers will take a short quiz, which will be answered as we go through the PPT.

I added some more info about Finland, including a compare and contrast section, and then briefly described the most common forms of alternative education at the end. They are not comprehensive, and deliberately has been left basic (the teachers are low level).

I have a while before I actually teach this, so any input would be great about the alternative forms of education. I don't want to add anymore, but would be willing to change or edit the ones I have already.

I must say i respect your candor at the end of this ppt. The information you provided is very interesting and I like that you did not argue it in any type authoritative way. I think my students will find this interesting. Thank you for sharing.
