Finnish Lessons 3.0 (Third Edition): What Can the World Learn from Educational Change in Finland? Free Audiobook Download by Pasi Sahlberg

The book describes the Finnish education system, its success as well as other benefits of this system. The educational changes were made over a short period of 20 years that were based on international research and input from other countries. One benefit is that the Finnish education has been shown to reduce class size and increase teacher-student time. Another is the drastic reduction in special education rates, which have plunged from around 30% to almost nothing because students are not stigmatized or labeled with disabilities until they reach school age.

This audiobook is a comprehensive review of how Finland's education has changed over the years and how their reforms have led to success. It is a great book for anyone interested in education or who wants to learn more about what makes Finnish schools unique.

This third edition of Finnish Lessons focuses on the adoption of reforms to Finland's education system, which has now been in place for over 20 years. Sahlberg draws from case studies and research to highlight the range of benefits that have resulted from the reforms, including improved student learning, increased international competitiveness, and economic growth.

The story goes like this. Finnish society in the 1950s was characterized by a high degree of inequality and the presence of many small schools in villages and rural areas, which led to a low quality education for mostly boys. In the 1990s, Finland decided to make changes to its education system and come up with an entirely new one. Pasi Sahlberg's book takes it upon himself to analyze how Finland has achieved success on various levels of education such as test scores, student graduation rates, and economic gains but also on social measures such as poverty rates and dropouts.
