Liberals, Conservatives and Romantic Nationalists in Interwar Education Policy in Greece: "The High Mountains" Episode
Athanasiades, Harris
History of Education, v44 n1 p64-82 2015
Greek historiography of interwar education policy unproblematically accepts the assumption that the bone of contention between the "Liberal demoticists" and the "Conservative purists" was the language issue; particularly whether "demotic" or "katharevousa" should be the language of instruction in schooling. This paper aims to challenge this assumption arguing that neither were the camps as homogeneous as has been traditionally assumed nor was the language what ultimately provoked the controversy. What was at stake here was the national and social ideology of education.
