After showing American Teacher, which reveals what's wrong with many American public schools, the Series turns to exploring how our schools might be improved in The Finland Phenomenon: Inside the World’s Most Surprising School System.
Finland’s education system has consistently ranked among the best in the world for more than a decade. The puzzle is, why Finland? Documentary filmmaker Bob Compton and Harvard researcher Dr. Tony Wagner decided to find out. The results of their research are captured in a much-discussed new film, The Finland Phenomenon.
In the 60-minute film, Dr. Wagner guides the viewer through an inside look at the world’s finest secondary education system. A lifelong educator and author of the best-selling book The Global Achievement Gap, Dr. Wagner is uniquely qualified to explore and explain Finland’s success. From within actual classrooms and through interviews with students, teachers, parents, administrators, and government officials, Dr. Wagner reveals the surprising factors accounting for Finland’s rank as the #1 education system in the world.
