Child Development Institute

In a Huffington Post Education piece, Susan Ochshorn, founder of ECE PolicyWorks, calls Finland "the mecca of education reformers across the globe" and shares her learnings from a recent symposium entitled Nordic Perspectives on Caring and Teaching in Early Childhood: Implications for Success in School. The symposium was convened by SLC's Child Development Institute in collaboration with the American-Scandinavian Foundation, and brought together leading childhood experts from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland. It is believed to be the first symposium of this kind and magnitude on the topic in the United States.
