Education forum: Lessons from Finland
Wed 3 May 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 BST
Bright Blue’s Forums are spaces for those on the centre-right to come together to chat about politics and discuss policy.
The Education Forum is an informal, fun and interactive opportunity to discuss and explore ideas and suggestions that relate to education policy. The intention of the forum is to produce policies that will allow the UK to offer world class education for all, regardless of birth, background or personal circumstances.
Join us for informal drinks and chat on the Government's recent education announcements.
For this forum, we are joined by Gabriel Heller Sahlgren. Gabriel is Research Director at the Centre for the Study of Market Reform of Education and Affiliated Research Fellow with the Research Institute of Industrial Economics. In addition, he is academic advisor at the European Centre for Entrepreneurship and Policy Reform and a PhD student at the London School of Economics, where he also works at the Centre for Economic Performance.
He is the author of numerous publications on issues relating to applied microeconomics, including Real Finnish Lessons: The True Story of an Education Superpower (CPS, 2015) and Incentivising Excellence: School Choice and Education Quality (CMRE and IEA, 2013).
