Finland just unveiled a dramatic new approach to its schooling system

Finland just unveiled a new initiative that will get rid of  the concept of subjects in school classrooms by 2020, and it’s pretty dramatic by American standards.

This means that rather than teaching maths, reading, and science as separate subjects, classroom teachers will now have lesson topics that span multiple subjects. For example, a topic could be the European Union, and linguistics, economics, and history, would all be included in that lesson, Richard Garner reported for The Independent.

Finland is a known powerhouse and innovator in education. And it’s got some pretty incredible statistics proving its success.
