The Future of Schools and Teacher Education

Eduardo Andere

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows the main results from the interviews, question after question, in a summarized way. Some trends or patterns were found in answers to questions relating to issues: the main pedagogical principles in the schools, the main curricula changes, the level of understanding about these changes, the mindsets of principals and teachers, the key factors behind Finnish school success, what is missing in schools in Finland, why teachers became teachers in the first place, and how happy individuals are with their career as teachers. At the same time, using the same data, a hypothesis was tested about the degree of “repetitiveness” in schools and teaching in Finland regarding whether schools and teachers think and implement teaching and learning in the same way or not.

Keywords:   teaching in Finland, learning in Finland, repetitiveness, learning environments, school success factors, principals, teachers, principal metaphors, teacher metaphors, mindset
