Education in Finland.
Gustafson, Matti
Educational practices of Finnish-language and Swedish-language schools at all levels are described in this volume. Administration of education is discussed, all levels except higher education being under the jurisdiction of the National Board of Schools which reports to the Ministry of Education, and professional education being governed by several ministries. Pre-school education which is voluntary and financed by municipalities, industrial enterprises, associations, and private individuals are briefly reported upon. Primary, secondary, and higher education are explained in some detail including information on educational history, administration, reform, the school year, school districts, statistics, class sizes, social benefits and questions, subjects taught, teaching methods, the marking system, examinations and diplomas, and categories of schools. Additional sections are provided on popular education -- namely a post school education of cultural activity -- and on professional, vocational, and technical institutions. Three supplements are presented on school statistics, the school reform in Finland, and educational policy, planning, finance, and research. (SJM)
