This tome reveals the mystery behind the success of Finland in international educational measures. Exploring the socio-economic, cultural and political journey which has led Finland to its success and sharing lessons we can take along the way.

Most relevant for educators is the in depth look at what makes Finnish teachers so successful; the prestige of the career, action research focus within practice, time to plan, prepare and be part of the holistic life of the school amongst others.

With lessons to learn and raising many questions about education this should be essential reading for school leaders and governments.
