I'm an American teacher in Finland, excavating Finnish education as I teach in Helsinki, and keeping a blog to share insights.

Mila Surage's insight:

I love this blog because it is from the point of view of an American teacher who teaches in Finlad. What better way to understand the pros and cons of finish education than from someone who has tought both?

At every point in history, every civilization has encountered bloodshed to fight for it’s independence. The same applies to Finland. Although today Finland stands atop the education pyramid while regularly ranking in the top percentile of the world, the journey was not easy. I would love to teach peace to children since they are the future. Education can also teach equal rights and responsibilities to children of all civilizations. Perhaps one day, the fine line of thinking one human being greater than another will cease to exist. This lesson can begin in the classroom. Take Finland as an example - a country once oppressed by Sweden and Russia - now ranks highest in the world in education after gaining its independence. Why should any country therefore undergo oppression? Perhaps teaching children this valuable lesson will have a positive effect on the leaders of the future.

Christine McCartney, a Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching is researching how Finnish teachers utilize authentic, on-going formative assessments in their classrooms on a daily basis. She has created a powerful presentation looking at the 60 year history of the educational trajectories that the US and Finland have taken.

 

She states: "While homogeneity in Finland certainly plays a role in the different trajectories of educational reform in the United States and Finland, a closer look reveals that there might be more at play."
