Attended 09.09.2019 - 13.09.2019

The visits to the schools in Finland and Estonia were of the utmost importance. The fact that you could attend lessons, talk to principals, teachers and students provided a lot of information about these two education systems, which are a very successful reference when we look at the PISA results.
