Learning For Life by Zhi Gang :]

Summary: In Finland, private tuitions were known to be extinct. The children studying at Finland were given free time and rest after school and homework. For those who have the matriculation exam, they have to stay at home to revise. Having practiced mock exam papers scenarios set by teachers and previous years’ paper, students just have to apply their knowledge to do well in the six hour paper. Since it is a six-hour long paper, students can do their best for it.

Opinion: In my opinion, I feel that schools are not just places of study, it is a place where one can learn to work with others. As the saying goes “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” somewhat, this saying is true in Finland. That is why private tuitions were “extinct” there as all parents believes that children should be given their own free time to take a break from a tiring day after school and homework.
