We've talked Finland before. Lots. But the Atlantic Monthly just posted a feature article called "What Americans Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success". Could we all be awakening to the fact that our eyes have been on the wrong prize? Will social equality lead to success?

Here are our feature videos on Finland, including Cheryl's interview with Pasi Sahlberg back in November at the People for Education Conference and his keynote address. It's a fascinating system that doesn't rely on standardized testing, doesn't have private schools, and maxes out on the education of their teachers...we repeat: can we learn from them?
