Some subscribers to LRNASST- L might be interested in a recent 
discussion-list post "Finnishing Touches" [Hake (2012)].

The abstract reads:

****************************************************
ABSTRACT:  There have been several recent posts regarding the 
evidently exemplary Finnish educational system on the discussion 
lists Physoc at <http://bit.ly/JjCbfH> and Math-Teach at 
<http://bit.ly/IJwwwf>. These threads were stimulated by, 
respectively, Al Bartlett's Physoc post "Education in Finland" at 
<http://bit.ly/HXVVAS> and Jerry Becker's Math-Teach post "What it 
takes to cross the Finnish line" at <http://bit.ly/IegubS>.

Is this just Yogi Berra's "deja vu all over again"? - see e.g., 
"Could the U.S. Put Finnishing Touches on K-12?" by Hake (2005b) at 
<http://bit.ly/IJiNW4 >. 

Probably not, because material by evidently well-informed Finnish 
writers is cited by Becker: "Finnish Lessons: What Can the World 
Learn from Educational Change in Finland? by educator Pasi Sahlberg 
(2011) - see <http://www.finnishlessons.com/> , and "What Americans 
Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success" by journalist Anu 
Partanen  (2011) at <http://bit.ly/JZpKB2>.

"The story of Finland's extraordinary educational reforms is one that 
should inform policymakers and educators around the world."
          Linda Darling-Hammond, quoted at <http://bit.ly/Jjsa2a>

"A terrific synthesis by a native Finn, a teacher, a researcher, and 
a policy analyst all rolled up into one excellent writer. Pasi 
Sahlberg teaches us a great deal about what we need to know before 
engaging in national educational reforms."
          David Berliner, quoted at <http://bit.ly/Jjsa2a>
