Hmm, practically this sounds like Scandinavia. Looks like from a PISA
education perspective you should aim at Finland.
Not sure that is a rational choice given language issues, though -
Finnish is likely a chore to learn given its non-Germanic nature. Sweden
also has a more extensive private school system, although the overall
educational quality is lower than Finland (which seem to run a pure
state school system). No real idea about Denmark.
Generally I think it is healthy to shop for countries that suit you.
More people ought to vote with their feet. Of course, being an EU
citizen I have it particularly easy (the free movement is a saving grace
that outweighs a sizeable amount of the evil in Brussels). And kids
might not understand the benefit they are gaining from seeing different
cultures. But it is there.
