Lindsay Whorton

Finnish Project Support, 2013

Project on how teachers’ unions participate in and impact the education policy‐making process in Finland. Whorton focused on the involvement of teachers’ unions in reforming compensation packages, in part as the role of labor relations in K‐12 education reform is an area of growing controversy in the U.S. Her Roth‐Thomson Award helped fund the translation into English of documents bearing upon relationships between policy‐makers and teachers’ unions in Finland.
