Benson to review lessons from trip


State Representative Jen Benson will host a public forum at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Harvard Public Library to discuss her recent trip to Finland and Sweden. Benson, a Democrat from Lunenberg, and about 30 education professionals from around the state traveled to the Scandinavian countries to study educational policy and practices there, and learn how they differ from Massachusetts. The primary focus was on Finland, which ranks first in international educational assessments. Benson’s district covers Boxborough, Harvard, Lunenburg, and Shirley, as well as parts of Acton and Lancaster.
