I want to make a difference in classrooms.

“Education costs money, but then so does ignorance.” — Sir Claus Moser

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” — Henry Brooks Adams

Ah how great it is to be able to have a job which pours into lives that are presently little and see them stand tall one day knowing its because you chose to made a difference in that little life.

The education system of Malaysia has always been something I hold close to my heart. I believe much should be done in the crucial years of these young minds, however dare I say, I’m left to be dismayed instead. Especially when I look back, down the road of my schooling days, much could be done.

Consider this article and video documentary via BBC News. Click.

The Finland education system compared with the Malaysian education system. Much could be compared with and adopted. Also note that Finland is where Nokia phones and gadgets are given birth from as it is one of the competitive countries for innovation and technology.

“Finland’s schools score consistently at the top of world rankings, yet the pupils have the fewest number of class hours in the developed world.”

“The system’s success is built on the idea of less can be more. There is an emphasis on relaxed schools, free from political prescriptions. This combination, they believe, means that no child is left behind.”

Food for thought indeed.
