Why Are Finland’s Schools So Good?

Why Are Finland’s Schools So Good?

Finland’s education system has consistently ranked among the best in the world for more than a decade. The puzzle is, why Finland? Documentary filmmaker Bob Compton and Harvard researcher Dr. Tony Wagner share the results of their research in the film, The Finland Phenomenon: Inside the World’s Most Surprising School System. In the 60-minute film, Dr. Wagner guides the viewer through an inside look at the world’s finest secondary school system. A life-long educator and author of the best-selling book, The Global Achievement Gap, Dr. Wagner is uniquely qualified to explore and explain Finland’s success as the #1 education system in the world.

Join us for a free screening and discussion session Monday, January 25, 7:00 p.m. at Inventive Labs, 5th Floor, 21 Water Street, Amesbury, MA. To reserve a seat, register here.
