I read this article (http://www.salon.com/news/david_sirota/2011/07/18/tony_wagner_finland). It explains how Finland has improved their educational system by focusing on excellent teaching and teacher preparation instead of testing. Apparently, all teachers are required to have a masters and collaboration among teachers is mandated. Are these ideals that could work here? Or the problem here is bigger than that? The article touches on economic disparities and diversity.
