A Great Website on Finnish Education Through American Eyes

Jen Chavez-Miller was a Distinguished Award in Teaching (DAT) Fulbrighter in Finland last year.
She put together a terrific website that deserves attention from those interested in the Finnish system and/or global education.
These are her pictures from her time here. Below is a list of links to her website, the main page of which is here. I really like her page on education in Finland: she has chosen some lovely quotations from the national curriculum. There is an overwhelming amount of content here. I don’t know how she did it!
