In Finland, Kids Learn Computer Science Without Computers (The Atlantic)

The Finns are pretty bemused by Americans’ preoccupation with whether to put iPads in every classroom. If a tablet would enhance learning, great. If it wouldn’t, skip it. Move on. The whole thing is a little tilting-at-windmills, anyway.

Makes me wonder if the USA problem is one of politics and business. Are there forces aligned to privatize the US education system for financial gain?

Thanks to kOoLiNuS for the link.

Perhaps it's time the United States choose it's leaders from the ranks of the learned instead of the ranks of the military.
