  • Did you see that documentary I tweeted to you about the Finnish education system? At least I’m pretty sure it was you who I tweeted it to.

    Anyone interested can watch it here (yes, there’s a commercial that lasts about 30 seconds first you have to endure).



  • I had not seen this! Thanks for sharing!
