Abstract: This article offers readers the opportunity to eavesdrop on a conversation between teacher educators from Finland and the United States at the conclusion of a field research project conducted in border schools in Arizona. The conversation ranges across topics central to schooling in both countries and exposes educational practices that are not part of the official educational narratives coming out of each country. This conversation raises questions about patriotism and nationalism, notes how schools deal with sexual preferences of students, and talks about the purposes of education. Perhaps most interestingly, the piece sheds new light on education in Finland.
