On the role of teachers and equal opportunities in the Finnish and Polish education systems

Marta Noińska


This paper focuses on the role of teachers and equal opportunities in primary and secondary education in Poland and Finland. The Finnish and Polish school systems have a lot in common regarding the structure and equity at early educational stages. However, with most citizens belonging to the middle class, Finland is in a much better position to provide equal educational opportunities for all children. Moreover, lack of social trust in Poland affects the Polish educational environment is a negative way. The author believes that changing the status of teachers in Polish society and trying to attract the best and brightest students to this profession would help to build a trust-based education system and to give greater autonomy to particular schools without fear of lowering the quality of education.
