Finnish schools coped well with the transition to distance education, but students hope for more interaction
As Finland switched to distance education in March 2020, Finnish National Agency for Education launched a study to find out how schools and institutions in primary and secondary education cope with being forced into distance education by the COVID-19 pandemic. The study collates and summarises a number of Finnish studies and reports with the aim of facilitating further reforms and development of education in the future. Both international comparisons and national studies indicate that the transition to and delivery of distance education in Finnish schools and educational institutions were successful considering the circumstances. This is attributed to the high professional skills of teachers and society's investments in education and digitalisation.
