In education, Finland is usually at the top & the USA near the bottom, but what is the middle or upper middle doing?
Like many other situations we like to focus on the extremes, and although learning from the best is not a bad idea, I would like to learn a little from the pretty darn good.
What are all those countries located in the upper middle area doing to get themselves where they are? Something tells me they aren't just avoiding wat the USA is doing and emulating Finland.
If you can, please share some of your stories and knowledge on what is working for you that other teachers and educators could mull over.
