Let the Children Play

Why More Play Will Save Our Schools and Help Children Thrive

Pasi Sahlberg and William Doyle

  • Inspired by the successes found in Finland's education system, from one of Finland's leading education thinkers
  • Authors, both fathers of school-age children, share their stories of switching countries -- Sahlberg brought his Finnish family to the US, while Doyle brought his American family to Finland -- and each was shocked at what they experienced on the other side
  • Describes the fascinating community-driven and play-based learning experiments ongoing around the world, in rural China, Singapore, Scotland, and closer to home in Texas and Oklahoma
  • Calls for change for children's learning and provides a guide for educators, administrators, policy makers, and parents who want to make change happen
