Finland’s Formula for School Success
"Teachers in Finland are well-trained and highly respected, and recruited from the top 10% of graduates."
"Because of the flexible national core curriculum that functions as a framework, Finnish teachers are able to design their own curriculum and choose their own textbooks."
"Finnish schools are typically small in size, and the administrators share teaching responsibilities."
"Finnish schools provide a broad array of services, including a hot meal for every student daily, health and dental care, and psychological guidance."
