Kirsti Lonka, Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Helsinki: "An equal school system, a science-based teacher training programme and a high regard for teachers. These are the ingredients that make Finland's education the best in the world. In the future, phenomena and learning skills will also increasingly gain ground in the mix".
