Educational Change in Finland; What Can We Learn?

I recently finished this audio book on my commute to and from school. I really enjoyed hearing it spoken; my only problem was that I couldn’t stop to write notes and questions constantly that came up while I was listening. I will most certainly be returning to this book in its paper form so I can search out the many tables, figures, and points made about this fascinating topic.

I highly recommend this book if: you are concerned with the status quo in public and private American education; are feeling “stuck” in your current practice in school’ or, if you are just interested in how one system was transformed through a focus on research-based teacher prep, teacher autonomy, and a shared vision of the purpose of school.
