Would You Take Finland?

RE: Evolution or Revolution, I think the question to ask is, "Would you take Finland's educational (and child welfare) system?" And if the answer is yes, then let's just do that. Finland's change from mediocrity to excellence was evolutionary. If you don't want that, the burden of proof is entirely on the side of doing something more difficult, untested and "revolutionary" than what Finland did.

Well yes, except I think that they evolved from a place it would take a revolution in the U.S. to get to.
