Officials hope new core curriculum will better cater to gifted students

A new core curriculum has been developed by Finland’s National Board of Education, to be launched nationwide in August 2016. The redesigned system will introduce a new concept: ’phenomenon teaching’ to replace traditional subject-based classes like history, math and foreign languages with interdisciplinary courses based on broader topics. Officials says this new approach will not only teach integrated knowledge and skills, but also have the added benefit of taking gifted students better into account.
