Curating content to help investigate Finland's Education Policy as a role model to Wales
I am using this to help with some MA research: Should Finland be a role model to policy makers in Wales when observing the standards achieved by students at the Compulsory - PDET interface and beyond? Is Finland actually a realistic role model? If so, what should Wales do about it? Does technology have any bearing on achievement in Finland? If so, is there anything Wales could learn from this aspect?

Highlights some of the discontent with Gove's educational policy, which appears to be entirely divergent from those of successful systems such as Finland. Although, I feel there is a smattering of South Korea's approach to education - will look into that.
