Teachers in Finland

Publicerad 2014-03-13 17:14:00 i Finland

I now know why Finnish students do so well in international rankings! I am convinced that it has to do with how teachers are viewed in Finland. In order to teach in Finland you have to have a masters degree. And in order to get in to a teaching program you have to belong to the top 10 % of your class. On top of that, if I have understood it correctly, the standard is tree teachers per twenty students.

Being a teacher in Finland is a high status job compared to for example Sweden where weiges and the attitude towards teachers is awful. Not to offend anyone, but when you chose to become a teacher in Sweden, I feel like the case more often is that you do not know what you would like to do, compared to making the choice because you are passionate about teaching.
