JAMSHORO: 01, APRIL, 2022: Shaheed Allah Bakhsh Soomro (SABS) University of Art, Design and Heritages Jamshoro organized a documentary screening of "The Finland Phenomenon".
The documentary consisted for basic information of one of the best education system of the world. On Finland Phenomenon the filmmaker, Bob Compton, follows Dr. Tony Wagner, a Harvard researcher conducted a thorough investigation on Finland’s extraordinary school system.
It was short, to-the-point documentary, but it had quite a good impact on students, because it illustrated so succinctly the innovative approach to education reforms. In documentary it was shown that teachers in Finland are not monitored or rated based on test scores, and teachers (as well as their students) have a great deal of autonomy.
It is a system built on mutual trust, and the film drives home the notion that trust rather than inappropriate accountability leads to real results.
It demonstrates that it is the trust which leads to teachers and students and members of government to own the system and efficiently contribute.
Vice-chancellor SABS Prof. Dr. Bhai Khan Shar and presenter Niranjan Rajani briefed students regarding the documentary and compared Finland and Pakistan's education system.
