In Finland, education is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education and Culture. The Finnish National Board of Education works with the Ministry to develop educational aims, content and methods for primary, upper secondary and adult education. The national education administration steers the provision and development of education and training mainly through funding and information. Local autonomy in education is quite extensive in Finland. Local administration is the responsibility of municipalities. Municipalities provide most of pre-primary, primary and upper secondary education in Finland and commonly give individual schools a large autonomy in designing their own curricula and education. Finnish higher education institutions are funded by the state but enjoy extensive autonomy. All education in Finland, from pre-primary to tertiary level, is free of charge.
