Canberra News writes that Australia is "stuck with the old myth that Finland is an education utopia Australia should emulate".The article refers to a study by Gabriel Heller Sahlgren, affiliated to IFN, et al: "Policies and pedagogy in Finland in the years prior to the PISA 2000 were more traditional and involved annual testing and reporting. Finland's move to an even more progressive model of education preceded its downward slide in PISA performance".
