The articles refers to the education functions of Sweden, the Netherlands and other countries. I realize this list is frequented by individuals from various foreign countries. I am interested in what your own view of your country's education function is and how it is structured (primarily public or private, year-round or summer vacation, class lengths, curricula content, science and mathematics approach, extracurricular activities, amount of field trips, etc.)

A well-educated populace is generally a more rational populace. So that's my tie-in to the list's subject matter. :)
