Schools in Finland are among the best in the world, whereas the U.S. routinely ranks somewhere down around 25th or 30th. Cenk talks to reporter Anu Partanen about her coverage in The Atlantic which explains how one country is getting an A+ in education.
“It really starts with the teachers,” Partanen says. “It’s very hard to get into university to become a teacher… It often seems that the Americans get it the wrong way around. It’s not that hard to be a teacher in certain states. As I understand it, in Texas you can take a three-month online course.”
Cenk says, “You’d be surprised how easy it is to get any job in Texas — you should see who they hand their governorship to.”
