Finnish Lessons 2.0
What Can the World Learn From Educational Change in Finland? Second Edition
Pasi Sahlberg has thoroughly updated his ground-breaking account of how Finland built a world-class education system during the past four decades.

Featuring substantial additions throughout the text, Finnish Lessons 2.0 demonstrates how systematically focusing on teacher and leader professionalism, building trust between the society and its schools, and investing in educational equity rather than competition, choice and other market-based reforms make Finnish schools an international model of success. This second edition details the complexity of meaningful change by examining Finland's educational performance in light of the most recent international assessment data and domestic changes.
