Janez Bogataj, doctor of ethnological sciences, professor at the University of Ljubljana Do we have five-star cuisine in Slovenia and which Slovenian restaurants do you reckon belong to this category? What is it that makes five-star cuisine? We have quite a few excellent restaurants and inns in Slovenia. I will list their names, but the numbers are between 15 and 30. All of them are definitely five-star places–if we use this label. In cuisine and gastronomy, five stars represent the highest quality sum of all the elements that define a certain restaurant, all their employees and their entire offer. Oftentimes, Slovenians wait for someone from abroad to wake up, come to Slovenia and assess our restaurants.

The bell does not ring, there is no traditional classroom, homework is not given and there are no tests or grades. All these sound like a dream to many school kids; but for 130 children in Jerusalem, this is reality. They are enrolled in the Sudbury School located in the city. Together with eight staff members, not teachers, they are implementing their belief that the traditional education with classrooms and tests is not effective. The school was founded in 2002, based on an American model created in the late 1960s. “I was looking for an educational system that would be child-centered, not teacher-centered … that would encourage students’ natural development so that they can continue with curiosity,” said Yehudit Ben Or, one of the founders of the school.

We have all heard about Finland’s great education system. From Pisa results to outstanding teacher training programs, Finland has certainly done something right. But at what school level does it all really start? The answer includes an adorable group of six-year-olds wearing brightly colored vests while playing in the frozen schoolyard. In this Nordic nation, the little ones matter and early childhood education is a key element for future success. We spoke to Sylvia Hakari, the pedagogical director at HEI Schools, to learn more about a new concept that aims to export the Finnish preschool model to the world. In partnership with the University of Helsinki, HEI Schools is a program that seeks to share the Finnish early childhood program with schools all over the world and, by 2020, will have 16 schools in different countries, including China and Australia.
