Finland has received a lot of attention lately for performing well in global rankings, particularly the PISA assessment. We selected this book because we were curious about the Finnish approach to education and what makes it so successful. What can others learn from Finland that we can bring to our schools?
Pasi Sahlberg has thoroughly updated his groundbreaking account of how Finland built a world-class education system during the past four decades. In this international bestseller, Sahlberg traces the evolution of Finnish education policies and highlights how they differ from the United States and much of the rest of the world. Finnish Lessons 2.0 demonstrates how systematically focusing on teacher and leader professionalism, building trust between the society and its schools, and investing in educational equity rather than competition, choice, and other market-based reforms make Finnish schools an international model of success. This book details the complexity of meaningful change by examining Finland’s educational performance in light of the most recent international assessment data and domestic changes.
