Seven Key Education Policies

Finland's education system enjoys political consensus on the major issues by its political parties. Seven key policies encapsulate the main issues under agreement:
  1. Depth: the importance of knowledge and learning
  2. Length: Long-term educational goals, rather than short-term gains
  3. Breadth: The responsibility of education falls at all levels of government
  4. Justice: Equity of quality and access of education
  5. Diversity: Strong principles of inclusive education and heterogeneous classrooms
  6. Resourcefulness: Trusting that creativity and competency override "routine experience"
  7. Conservation: Balancing proven, efficient education methods with new innovations
