Ah, Finland!

This is interesting.  Professor Andrew Pollard, teaching guru, former member of one of the government’s expert panels (part of what the Secretary of State for Education calls the ‘Blob’) and one of my influences at the Institute of Education, talked to us about education in Finland.

As you’ll see from this video, they do something right there.  But Professor Pollard passed on a warning from Finland’s Education Minister, “Don’t think you can just replicate this.  It’s uniquely Finnish.”  From which I infer that this has to be a ‘whole society’ thing.
