History of Schooling: Politics and Local Practice
Aubry, Carla, Ed.; Westberg, Johannes, Ed.
Peter Lang Frankfurt
The relationship between education policy and local practices is at the core of research pertaining to the history of education. In this volume, the authors examine this issue from a multitude of perspectives, presenting a broad and comprehensive picture of schooling on international, national and local levels. Three issues of great significance, both in the history of schooling, and for educational policy--"School Finance", "School Reform" and "School Media"--are discussed in relation to five European countries by addressing topics such as textbook supply in the eighteenth century, the spread of monitorial education, the rise of educational expenditure during the nineteenth century, and the internationalization of educational policy during the twentieth century.
