Improve overall school performance from start to Finnish!

 

Finland’s consistent performance in international student assessments has caused much curiosity in recent years. Educators around the world are exploring what Finland does well and how they remain at the top.

 

Pasi Sahlberg has hosted multiple delegations of educators in Finland seeking ideas and tools to apply to their home districts, and has determined real change can begin with four uncomplicated ideas. Focusing on leading learners, this book considers topics like:

  • Physical activity is crucial for substantial learning
  • Enhancing equity is an essential component of success
  • Embedding ideas into your current leadership practices takes perseverance

 

Finland’s particular brand of leadership culture in education is an ideal model for improving educational performance anywhere
