We now have links to media coverage from Pasi Sahlberg’s recent visit to Minnesota. The Finnish education expert was only in the Twin Cities for a few days, but the impression he made on teachers, policymakers, and community members will last a long time. Amid his full schedule of speaking engagements, Sahlberg was able to make time for interviews with local education reporters when he was in the Twin Cities at the invitation of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers, the Minnesota Guild of Public Charter Schools and the Teacher Union Reform Network. Below are links to some of the highlights.
Stay tuned to EducationHow for a future blog post summarizing Pasi Sahlberg’s visit from our perspective.
