    Finland: Human Rights and The Freedom of Prisoners

    Another thought from mine about Finnish education. ——— This weekend, I unintentionally had a chance to watch one episode from the docuseries “Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons” on Netflix, and that one episode got my attention because it was about one prison in Finland – Kylmäkoski prison (Kylmäkosken vankila).
