Risku, Mika; Bjork, Lars G.; Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia
Journal of School Public Relations, v33 n1 p48-71 Win 2012
This article provides insight into the nature and scope of home-school cooperation in Finland. Situating the study is a brief overview of the Finnish education system and a discussion of the Programme for International Student Assessment reports that place Finnish student outcomes at the top of rankings among industrialized nations for the past decade. Legislation and research findings about principals' work at the school level and municipal levels of government frame a discussion of parents' roles in a rapidly changing Finnish society and in the local provision of education.
