Description

Pasi Sahlberg has thoroughly updated his ground-breaking 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. Featuring substantial additions
throughout the text, 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 second
edition details the complexity of meaningful change by examining Finland's
educational performance in light of the most recent international assessment data
and domestic changes.


This second edition details the complexity of meaningful change by
illustrating Finland’s educational performance in light of the most recent
international assessment data, including PISA 2012, TIMSS 2011, PIAAC 2013, and
TALIS 2013.


In the midst of continuous local reforms and global changes, Finnish Lessons 2.0 encourages
educators, students and policymakers to look beyond their own borders as they
seek successful solutions for their education systems, districts and schools.
