As you may know, I recently began a mission to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. As part of that mission, I am excited to be in Finland right now. Finland is thought to have one of the best education systems in the world (see http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/06/opinion/sahlberg-finland-education/).
I have been visiting Finnish schools, meeting with educational experts, and exploring programs that are addressing education and special education in unique ways.
Over the next few days, I hope to report back about details from the trip and insights I have gained.
