JYUNewsItem Equity makes for better PISA results
Finland has been one of the top-performing countries in four PISA surveys conducted in 2000–2009. In order to maintain its position, Finland must continue to improve its results at the same pace with the other leading countries. National policies that apply equally to all students across the board are not enough; what is needed are targeted measures to improve performance in the poorest areas and groups.
