One of my classmates from college found this image on the internet and I felt that it is all too appropriate as a coda to my earlier post. (It’s a big image, so I’ve cut it into sections.)

Finland’s Education System: 10 Surprising Facts That Americans Shouldn't Ignore

Finland Knows What’s Best

Finland? Yes, Finland.

Finland has consistently scored among the highest nations in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a standardized test given every three years by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development that measures student achievement across the globe. Another remarkable fact about Finland’s education system is that students are only required to take one test during their entire time as students.

Finland’s academic success has drawn a great amount of attention, leaving many countries wondering if it’s the Nordic country’s teaching methods or if there’s magic water in their fjord. Here are 10 things that set Finland apart from the rest of the world in education.

'What if Finland's Great Teachers Taught in Your Schools?' Pasi Sahlberg - WISE 2013 Focus

Published on Aug 8, 2014

Many governments are under political and economic pressure to turn their school systems around for higher rankings in the international league tables. Canada, South Korea, Singapore and Finland are commonly used models for the nations that hope to improve teaching and learning in their schools. In search of a silver bullet, reformers now turn their attention to teachers, believing that if only they could attract "the best and the brightest" into the teaching profession the quality of education would improve. This presentation argued that just having better teachers in schools will not automatically improve students' learning outcomes. Lessons from Finland and other high-performing school systems suggest that we should also protect schools from prescribed teaching, toxic accountability, and unhealthy competition, so that all teachers can use their professional knowledge and skills in the best interests of their pupils.
