The second CPN seminar was held as planned on 26th of June in the library of University of Oslo. There were over 20 CPN members and Norwegians who attended this seminar, although the summer holiday had just begun from this day.

Prof. Arild Tjeldvoll talked about in details his book, titled “Can Norway learn from China - School quality”. His answer is a very big "Yes" based on his many years of comparative research in education and case studies in China and other countries such Finland, Denmark, France and USA etc. He pointed out Norway could learn a lot from Chinese learning culture. He highly praised the Chinese educational system and criticized the quality of Norwegian school, particularly primary and secondary school in Norway. Many questions were asked from the audience and active discussions took place during the whole seminar. Feedback from the participants are very good, for instance, the seminar is interesting and inspiring.

Prof. Arild Tjeldvoll is so generous to give the electronic version of his book for free to all the participants by request.
