Indian kids do not have it easy when it comes to school and education. Kids as young as 2-3 year old are sent to play schools. And they start with elementary schooling from 3-4 years of age. At an age when they can’t even walk straight, they are already carrying school bags on their shoulders.
You don’t even realise how time flies and the next moment you’re sitting for half-yearly exams and final exams, and before you know it, you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle, a vicious web you’ll be tangled in for the next 14-15 years of your life.
But the kids in Finland are having the time of their lives. They spend their school time playing in the grounds, climbing trees and chatting with their friends to their heart’s content. And for this very reason, the students of Finland turn out to be extremely intelligent and successful. And India can definitely learnt a lot from them.
