Finland schools: Subjects scrapped and replaced with ‘topics’ as country reforms its education system

Finland schools: Subjects scrapped and replaced with ‘topics’ as country reforms its education system:

“We really need a rethinking of education and a redesigning of our system, so it prepares our children for the future with the skills that are needed for today and tomorrow.

“There are schools that are teaching in the old fashioned way which was of benefit in the beginnings of the 1900s – but the needs are not the same and we need something fit for the 21st century.”

This coming from the country that is already revolutionary in the way that they teach their students.

Around the world people are just coming to grasp what Finland has already long been doing with their education system and just as some are beginning reform Finland goes and ups the ante.

I can’t wait to see how this changes things again.
