The Finnish Model for USA School to Work:
~Tony Wagner’s Agenda

~Carnegie Marc Tucker’s Agend

The John Birch Society, which recently announced its support for tax-funded school choice (see our blog’s article “John Birch Society Comes Out of Closet”), has a computer home school program which is tailored to some of the elements of the “new” Finnish education model being promoted by major change agent Tony Wagner of Harvard.

Maine’s Dept. of Education brought Prof. Tony Wagner into Maine as a consultant on restructuring a couple of years ago. Read, “Wagner: Schools should retool, teach ‘survival skills’,” from the Maine DOE Newsroom webpage.
