Abstract

BASTOS, REMO MOREIRA BRITO. The surprising success of the Finnish educational system in a global scenario of commodified education. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.70, pp.802-825. ISSN 1413-2478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/s1413-24782017227040.

This paper, supported by bibliographic qualitative research, makes use of state of the art sources in studies of the educational system of Finland, as well as official government and multilateral institutions’ documents that investigate and seek to influence national decisions in the area of education. Additionally, it discusses the emergence, in 2001, of the international recognition of the the success of the country’s educational model. In view of the astonishing results obtained by students in the first Programme for International Student Assessment, which was conducted in 2000, we address the factors that contribute to the consistency and the success of Finland’s educational paradigm. Among the achieved results, emerges the conclusive understanding that there are successful alternative educational systems that are deeply opposed to the global corporate standard of education, and which can serve as educational models for other nations.

Keywords : Finland; education; educational system.
