What has gone wrong in Finland? PISA 2012

What has gone wrong in Finland? PISA 2012 | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"..National student assessments and academic research in Finland have shown that students’ knowledge and skills in mathematics have declined since the mid-2000s. A recent study from the University of Helsinki found a significant drop in 15-year-old students’ learning skills. PISA 2012 accordingly revealed no big surprises in Finland..."


"Many may ask: ‘What has gone wrong in Finland?’  Why have scores dropped? Is it because something that had driven improvement earlier has now disappeared from Finnish schools? Or is it due to changes in Finnish society or homes?  Whatever the reasons behind the changes, Finns must adopt smart responses and avoid hasty, false recoveries; analyze past data again; and learn more from other countries, their success stories and failed reforms."
