“Welcome to a country where students are stress-free with minimal exams and homework, teaching is a highly respected profession and kids start their school, not before age of 7. Finland’s teachers have kept the nation near the top of the influential Pisa performance rankings since they were first published in 2001.

 

Let's try to uncover the layers of secrecy with hands-on experiences, interactions and visit to the schools.”
