I found this video on Mr. Bogush’s blog about the Finland Phenomenon aptly called, “The Finland Phenomenon.” I think that we can learn a lot from Finland. From 2000 to 2009 Finland has scored #1 in the world in Reading, Math, and Science. Yet in Finland students start school later, spend less time in school, have almost no homework, and aren’t tested like our students are. Yet they are still more successful on many levels. This film can shed some light on what they’re doing that we can adopt or adapt. What do you think?
