Education has always been important part of the Finnish society, and both education and the teaching profession have traditionally been held in high regard. Finnish basic education has received international acclaim and attention over the years for its high quality and good results. Part of the success can be explained by Finnish culture, where education and learning are considered to be an important resource to a small country.
Education sector is wide and holds an importance for everyone and all the age groups. There are continuous changes going on both in contents and in ways of arranging education. These changes need to be planned, managed and well-justified. They have to serve the interests of all parties. And in such a situation finding balance is particularly relevant. The issue of balance has emerged also in international educational contexts.
