Finland has the best primary and secondary education achievement in the world which results in them staying in school until they are almost 30

So the value of that oh so high quality Finnish education is in fact negative because the average Finn doesn't get their first degree until 29?  And most of them then stay on for their Masters? File this under the "No good deed goes unpunished department"  See here for more.

Finnish students stay in college longer than in any other developed country save Austria, the Netherlands and Denmark, getting their first university degree on average at 29, according to a 2013 report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. That compares with 24 years for Britons, 26 for Germans and the OECD average of 27 years. Most Finns who graduate from college get a master’s degree.

Clearly high quality lower education is a menace - we should be thankful we don't have any because at our college's prices the nation would be bankrupt if we were as well or should I say elaborately educated as the Finns.  God help them.
