    •  I respect you so much (0+ / 0-)

      for everything that you write here, and I thank you so much for including this reference.

      However, I'm still trying to draw your attention to the possibility that the children of Finland have less poverty because they have a better schools.

        Finland's schools are LIKELY more effecting in have impacts because they do not function under the weight of poverty. . .

        Nothing has ever attributed a drop in poverty in Finland or anywhere SOLELY to the impact of schools. . .

        Our schools have important influence here in the US. . .just that most of that impact isn't captured in MEASURABLE outcomes. . .
