Meyer, John W.; And Others
Sociology of Education, v65 n2 p128-49 Apr 1992
Discusses the availability of school enrollment data from 120 countries for the period 1870-1980. Concludes from the data that growth in education was steady prior to 1940 and increased sharply after 1950. Suggests that the emergence of the nation state model and the centrality of education in the model contributed to the acceleration. (SG)
