Finland is this decade's shiny icon of classroom success. Since it implemented huge education reforms 40 years ago, Finland's school system has consistently come at the top of international rankings. Finland’s schools are publicly funded, homework is minimal, and compulsory schooling does not begin until age 7. The Finnish system draws teacher candidates from the top 10% of graduates, trains teachers well, and lets them design the curriculum around very lean national standards. What can other countries learn from Finland’s successes, and what challenges should they keep in mind?
