September 10th, 2012

Our Delaware delegation and the other 35 Americans that joined us, had an opportunity to spend the better part of a week with Pasi Sahlberg (in the center of the photo), a former teacher and author of “Finnish Lessons: What Can the World Learn From Educational Change in Finland.”  His blog in The Washington Post was apparently inspired by our visit.  The history and culture is different, but the Finns do a really good job of taking care of their people.  Pasi posits a pretty logical explanation: Women.
