A plus or F minus? Educational Equity in Finland and Australia

This webinar, the first of The Nordic Policy Centre at The Australia Institute special Nordic Talks webinar series, will explore how Australia could move closer to Finland’s world-leading achievement by putting equity at the heart of education.

The success of Finnish educational outcomes shows that equity drives excellence for all students. More than a decade after the Gonski review into Australia’s school funding aimed to reduce the impact of social disadvantage on educational outcomes, educational outcomes for Australian schoolchildren are getting worse.

Join Professor of Education, Pasi Sahlberg, and Federal President of the Australian Education Union, Correna Haythorpe for this important discussion, hosted by The Nordic Policy Centre at the Australia Institute.

Date of the event: 1 December 2022, 1.30pm AEDT
