Is there a way for me to find newspaper articles about the school reforms that happened in Finland during the 1970s and 80s? I'm interested to learn about the public response to detracking and the creation of the comprehensive schools. I don't speak Finnish, but if I can find someone to help me search or read if I find an archive or some articles. Thanks!

I suggest you visit a public library in Helsinki and search in HS Aikakone  https://www.hs.fi/aikakone/.

HS Aikakone contains articles published in Helsingin Sanomat newspaper from years 1904-1997. Unfortunately the user interface is only in Finnish but I am sure you can get some help from the library staff. HS Aikakone can only be used in the library premises unless you have an own subscription of HS Digi.
