Nordic Talks: A plus or F minus? Educational Equity in Finland and Australia


More than a decade after the Gonski review into Australia’s school funding aimed to reduce the impact of social disadvantage on educational outcomes, educational outcomes for Australian schoolchildren are getting worse. The success of Finnish educational outcomes shows that equity drives excellence for all students.

This webinar, the first of our special Nordic Talks webinar series, will explore how Australia could move closer to Finland’s world-leading achievement by putting equity at the heart of education.

Hosted by the Nordic Policy Centre at the Australia Institute, supported by Nordic Talks. #NordicTalks #auspol
