Finland has one of the best school systems in the world, and Morgan Spurlock spent a day in a Finnish 8th grade classroom where one of the day's lessons was called, “Things That Are Typically American”.
According to the textbook, Finnish kids associate the following with the typical American: Uncle Sam, McDonalds, Mickey Mouse, the Simpsons, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.
One student admitted to Spurlock that he, in fact, does think Americans drive big trucks and eat fast food. The teacher made sure to point out that she didn't want the kids' view of Americans to be so stereotypical, calling the United States "a great country," saying: "There’s a lot to see and a lot more than just this hamburger culture."
