Just a couple of notes on BBC World Service’s programme about education in Finland
- Finland is a Nordic, not a Scandinavian country.
- I would have liked to hear more specific details about the education of teachers and teaching practices.
- The Finns have the goal of a non-divisive school in common with the Scandinavian countries – but the results of the PISA-tests diverge. Why?
Listen to the programme here – also available as a download.PS to Finnish readers: Yes, I know the title of the post is misleading. It’s a play on how Swedes traditionally see Finland and Finnish education.
