Today's Newsletter: You Can't Compare Finnish And American Schools

6/9/2014 12:00:00 AM
What is it with Finland? Politico recently posted this piece  questioning why this tiny Northern European country’s education system is so superior to the US. The latest theory—success is NOT due to using tech: “Finnish students and teachers didn’t need laptops and iPads to get to the top of international education rankings, said Krista Kiuru, minister of education and science at the Finnish Parliament. And officials say they aren’t interested in using them to stay there.” I don’t buy it. We’ve been reading about Finland  for years. My take? Comparing the 15,000 school districts in this country to a nation with an entire population roughly the size of Minnesota is not productive. —Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director
