Finland's lessons for Australian School Policy

Andrew Scott, author of Northern Lights, the prominent new book on Nordic nations, will discuss specifically and in detail Finland’s major lessons for Australian schools policy. Finland has rocketed to world leadership in educational quality and equity since the 1990s. It has done so with an overwhelmingly public school system; by highly valuing the profession of teaching; through comprehensive programs to meet all students’ needs; without high-stakes competitive testing; and by developing curriculum in a consultative way. Given the new Victorian Government’s plans to bring back some technical schools, the presentation at this event about how Finnish schools provide vocational education will be of particular interest.
This event is part of the NIBS Australia Series.
