33 Three Questions for Illinois: Do you need all that standardized testing? Can you do more to improve well-being? Could vocational options be enhanced? 1 2 3

34 ”One thing I never want to see happen is schools that are just teaching to the test because then you’re not learning about the world, you’re not learning about different cultures, you’re not learning about science, you’re not learning about math.” “All you’re learning about is how to fill out a little bubble on an exam and little tricks that you need to do in order to take a test and that’s not going to make education interesting.” 28 march 2011

35 "The story of Finland's extraordinary educational reforms is one that should inform policymakers and educators around the world.” —Linda Darling-Hammond, Stanford University “A terrific synthesis by a native Finn, a teacher, a researcher and a policy analyst all rolled up into one excellent writer.” —David Berliner, Arizona State University "This book is a wake-up call for the U.S. It is the antidote to the NCLB paralysis." —Henry M. Levin, Teachers College, Columbia University Foreword by Andy Hargreaves Kiitos!
