Starting from the abandonment of the supervisory system and adoption of a system that puts trust in the heads of teachers and in teachers, and up to the cancellation of learning subjects in 400 schools and replacing it with multidisciplinary learning. All of which led the country to very high achievements on all international measures, and have made Finland a sought-after destination for exploration and learning expeditions

Denmark

The free schools comprise 20% of the entire Danish education system and perceive themselves as the forefront of Denmark and the free world in development of new models. The role of the free school in Denmark isn’t merely preparation to work life, but rather preparation to life as a whole. For this purpose, the definition of the teacher includes the creation of a profound discourse with the students, and expanding their world by developing natural curiosity and learning for the sake of learning. The main goal is to achieve internally motivated learning, whereas the school constitutes a source of enlightenment. The basis of this perception is rooted deeply in the values of democracy, community, and the immense importance placed on personal development.
