Andrew J. Coulson writes about the report Real Finnsih Lessons by Gabriel Heller Sahlgren, who is affiliated to IFN. Coulson concludes: "... Finland has been slipping in the rankings on the PISA test in recent years ... And, as will be revealed in a forthcoming paper by Gabriel Sahlgren, the introduction of the most celebrated Finnish education policies does not support the view that they aided its rise on the PISA test, due to their timing."
