Pasi Sahlberg's Text Reviews
A terrific synthesis by a native Finn, a teacher, a researcher and a policy analyst all rolled up into one excellent writer. Pasi Sahlberg teaches us great deal about what we need to know before engaging in national educational reforms.
David Berliner, Regents' Professor - College Of Education at Arizona State University
The story of Finland's extraordinary educational reforms is one that should inform policymakers and educators around the world. No one tells this story more clearly and engagingly than Pasi Sahlberg, who has lived and studied these reforms for decades.
Linda Darling-Hammond - Professor of Education and Co-Director of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education at Stanford University
Finland's remarkable educational story is both informative and inspiring for others because it shows that with appropriate effort sustained over time, a country can make huge improvements for its young people, something that all countries aspire to do.

He was excellent on the stage with 2,000 folks in the auditorium. His PowerPoint was perfect and he added appropriate humor. He had two follow up breakout sessions and they were excellent. He was a hit!
