We talk to a group of high school students from the Öckerö Sailing School in Sweden who just finished up a sailing trip that took them throughout the Gulf of Mexico before landing in Tampa. 20 crew members of the 40 member crew of students join us to talk about their experiences sailing, The life of a Swedish high schooler and their impressions of American society and culture. Their teacher Brita Malmcrona discusses how the Swedish educational system works and educates its pupils in a way that is less concerned with testing and emphasizes more on critical thinking.
