DR. PASI SAHLBERG'S CONGRESS SPEECH 2 (SINGAPORE PREMIERE)
URBAN LEGENDS ABOUT EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT
CONGRESS | 18 APR 2019
International comparisons of education systems have led many of us wonder why Singapore and Finland have so much better performing school systems than the rest. Or why some countries are struggling to improve their students’ learning in school? Today we know much better what explains good school performance and success of some education systems. But, at the same time, policy-makers, school leaders and parents are surrounded by ideas about how to make schools better that often have only a little to do with available research evidence. This presentation explores some harmful ideas and myths about educational improvement and then offers some solid, research-based ideas to participants instead. Examples include those found in Finland, Australia and the United States.
