The education system of Finland is appraised by the Educational Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The problems of each educational sector and the relationships between sectors are examined and the contribution of the education system to the economic, cultural, and social life of the nation is assessed. There are three major parts to the report. Part 1 contains the "Examiners' Report" describing the modern Finnish experience, economic development and educational planning, early childhood education, compulsory schooling, upper secondary and vocational education, higher education, and continuing education. In the second part, a Finnish team of 11 persons led by their Minister of Education in a review meeting answer specific questions from the examiners concerning topics discussed in their report. Part 3 summarizes educational policy in Finland for the various educational levels and for educational administration, teacher training, and educational research. (RM)
