Finland’s school system

(AN INTERMEDIATE LISTENING LESSON)

Education is a topic on which everyone seems to have a strong opinion. In your view, what is it that makes a good and equitable school system?

Finland, a Scandinavian country, is known to have one of the best education systems in the world. This week, we are learning about schools in Finland and also talking about the education systems in our own countries.

The lesson is based on this report from the 7.30 program on ABC News Australia: Why Finland’s schools outperform most others across the developed world

I hope you enjoy this lesson.

See you in the classroom!
