    Same idea here in Denmark, strange as that may sound. We are the traditional enemy after all.

    However the basic premise is that while education is a strain on society the eventual benefit overcomes it by far. Thus, we have free education at all levels and student income programs that allows you to concentrate on your books while studying.

    Though, the student wages do assume that you can manage a tight personal budget. I for one could not :) - So most students do what I did, they have jobs on the side. Still, the basic premise is that you _can_ get your education for free.

    Do you have to meet some qualifications to get that free education? It would seem everyone would want to go into the fields that paid the most and not necessarily what is needed by society. I would say technical and trade schools should have no tuition.

    Yeah, grades would decide if you get in or not. Not exactly supply and demand but meh, you could give students better information on what professions are more needed.

    Double post but worth it imo...

    Not as impressive as Mexico breaking the world record for group insulting a politician via his mother, but pretty impressive by Quebec standards on a pretty hot day.

    I thought that was Norway? We are more similar in views and values than some issues would suggest.

    Access to higher education is determined by your grades or result on a national aptitude test. There's no special funding for focus areas but the most popular educations are in high demand due to limited numbers of positions like physician, lawyers, psychologists etc.

    Well, that would be rather pointless here since hospitals are free and people tend to be insured against accidents.

    Also, there's no tradition for paying high damages to the injured party in a law suit. Typically if it's a work related accident, there's a set tariff depending on the extent of the injury and in case the accident inquiry finds proof of hazardous working conditions or lack of access to proper protective gear, then the employer may find themselves sued by the state and/or the workers' unions rather than the injured/dead employee('s family).

    As a result, there aren't many frivolous law suits and there's no real need for a steady stream of hotshot lawyers...

    It also means that I'm not bound by the insurance policies when I practise medicine. Very sensible if you ask me. I can be prosecuted in a court if I mess up but until I do I'm bound by my work and personal ethics. I can get sued but since the sums are smaller most doctors worry more about loosing their license or getting crappy reputation. In my experiences it's better to curb actual errors and learn how to avoid them rather than settling things in court were a lot of effort is spent on the doctor-patient meeting with all that it entails.

    We do get journalists that follows the ambulances though. Does that count?
