National cases, international collaboration – an example from Finland
AbstractIn his recent editorial of J-Reading, Joseph P. Stoltman (2013) described some changes that have been going on within geography education in the United States. In this editorial, my aim is to continue the same kind of discussion by opening up some perspectives on Finnish geography education.
