Michael Russell is the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning in the Scottish Government. You can find more information about him, and the other Ministers, on the Scottish Government website.

Mr Russell is visiting Finland and Sweden from the 14th to the 17th of March 2010. During this time he will visit schools and meet with experts and Ministers in both countries to discuss our respective systems of education..

The visits in Helsinki and Stockholm are focussed on issues around school options and governance, plus parental choices and involvement in these areas. Mr Russell is also likely to be discussing evaluation and accountability of schools and current upper-secondary school reforms, particularly in assessment and vocational learning, with his counterparts in Finland and Sweden.
