International Education News: 2017 in Review

Happy New Year! As we here at International Education News start 2018, we thought we would look back at some of the posts from 2017.

This year, we explored topics ranging from the high-performing Estonian education system to a new approach to drugs education in the Americas. Statistically, our posts covered over a dozen countries, including multiple posts on South Africa and Finland. In 2017, people from 165 countries visited our website. Most of our visitors come from the U.S.A. We also had a significant number of visitors from the Philippines, Singapore, and the U.K. Our most viewed post from 2017 focused on educational change in Malaysia. Over on Twitter, our top Tweet focused on a question of “why Finland’s schools seem to be slipping.”

We rounded up headlines about notable global education news such as the PISA well being report, PIRLS, and PISA Collaborative Problem Solving results.

We also covered a number of stories here in the U.S. as part of our ongoing examination of educational improvement efforts. These posts included informal learning institutions like the Beam Center and Right to Play.

Moving into 2018, look for new posts each Wednesday and follow us on Twitter @intl_ed_news
