  1. This is an enlightening article. Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond points out that Finland’s centralized equal funding and de-centralized teacher empowerment and local control have combined to make unprecedented improvements in their educational system; moreover, it has created a system to be emulated due its emphasis on student-centered reflective critical thinking for a democratic and creative society. She reminds us that the U.S. is doing the exact reverse- centralizing policy and de-centralizing funding, creating “savage inequalities” (Kozol) and mind numbing oppressive curriculum. We are getting what we have reaped, and we have to change now.
