Education - From Start to Finnish

According to the 2015 Pisa rankings, Finland's much-heralded academic achievements in science, maths and reading have been surpassed by Asian economies such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan. While higher taxes have meant higher spending on education, Finland's unemployment rate remains above the OECD and EU average. Olli explains how Finland's education system is evolving to face future challenges.
