Lahti scores with new "survival kit" for higher education students. Students entering Lahti's vocational schools and university have given the city high marks for its starter kit.
So far 1,000 new entrants in the city’s colleges of applied sciences or vocational colleges and roughly 30 new university students have received the packages and shared rave reviews on social media. The cardboard boxes were distributed for the first time Wednesday to newcomers as part of their orientation to their new institutions of higher learning.
Officially dubbed a "survival pack" the box contains what city officials perceive to be essentials for new entrants to higher education institutions: a bus card valid for trips within the city limits, a calendar diary, tickets to sporting events, discount coupons and a variety of products manufactured locally, such as rye chips, sheets and socks. The box also provides edibles such as porridge as well as a favourite Finnish treat, salmiakki – a hackle-raising salty licorice highly-popular in the Nordics. Éducation pour le XXIe siècle.

Published on March 7th 2014, the story reports that Shanghai “is considering to withdraw from the next round of PISA in 2015” because “Shanghai does not need so-called ‘#1 schools,’” said Yi Houqin, a high level official of Shanghai Education Commission.
“What it needs are schools that follow sound educational principles, respect principles of students’ physical and psychological development, and lay a solid foundation for students’ lifelong development,” says the article, quoting Mr. Michael Gove promises to abolish illiteracy and innumeracy in UK. The education secretary, Michael Gove, has promised to abolish illiteracy and innumeracy in the UK, following George Osborne's pledge this week to create a full employment society.
Gove's pledge in a speech to the British Chambers of Commerce is part of a co-ordinated Conservative attempt to paint a big picture of where a second-term Tory government would take the country. Party strategists are gearing up for difficult local and European elections, and feel the need to offer more than a further diet of public spending cuts. Gove claimed the Tory record on employment creation showed the Conservatives were "the real party of labour and the real party of social justice".
