Teacher training in Finland gets high marks – Daily Republic

By Mayrene Bates

Doug Ford, my colleague on the Solano County Board of Education, loves to compare American education to that of other industrialized countries. Months ago, he shared a book, “The Smartest Kids in the World and How They Got That Way,” and passed out several copies but only recently have I had an opportunity to read my copy.

Several years ago, author Amanda Ripley of Time magazine followed three American teenagers for a year who went to live and study in three different countries: Finland, Poland and South Korea. Her book was published in 2013. The American Field Service and Rotary Clubs have been sponsoring such student exchange programs for many years.
