Finnish expert: Improving equity key to better education system

Israel’s education system has a “twin challenge,” suffering from lower-than-average achievements and less-than-average equity in the system, Pasi Sahlberg, an educator and renowned expert on education systems from around the world, said just days before Naftali Bennett is to be sworn is as education minister.

“If you come from a less-advantaged family, the likelihood that those children would benefit from going to school are very thin here,” said Sahlberg, who has worked as a policy adviser in Finland – generally regarded as the top education system in the world – and researched and written about the success of that system.
