Join WFPL Education Reporter Devin Katayama as he sits down with this year's University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award Winner, Pasi Sahlberg, for a conversation about public education.
Sahlberg has become a global leader in education reform. He has worked with the World Bank, European Union and governments in more than 40 nations to provide strategic guidance to improve education. His 2011 book, "Finnish Lessons: What Can the World Learn from Educational Change in Finland?" sold out within weeks of its first printing. Now director general for the Centre for International Mobility and Cooperation in the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture in Helsinki, Sahlberg works to promote internationalization, creativity and global learning through education, culture, youth and sport.
Admission is free. Reserve your spot by emailing NextLouisville@wfpl.org with the subject line RSVP Pasi Sahlberg Program.
