Overview

Finnish Lessons is a first-hand, comprehensive account of how Finland built a world-class education system during the past three decades. The author traces the evolution of education policies in Finland and highlights how they differ from the United States and other industrialized countries.

This book details the complexity of educational change and encourages educators and policymakers to develop effective solutions for their own districts and schools.
