Van Ruyskensvelde, Sarah; Hulstaert, Karen; Depaepe, Marc – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
An analysis of the history of primary education in Belgium by Depaepe et al. in 2000 has demonstrated how the idea of "order" structured classroom reality in the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This "order" is not only visible in the internal organisation of schooling (e.g. division into year classes, a…

Giudici, Anja; Grizelj, Sandra – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
By the end of the nineteenth century, the relationship between the state, language and schooling had become extremely close: a state was supposed to be "national," and a real nation was supposed to be monolingual. Following the literature on nation-building, it is because schooling was charged with the task of forming such nations that…

Papakosta, Konstantina – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
The reality of Greek education presents a dissension in relation to the global trends regarding the existence and use of a single textbook per school subject. This reality also influences the orientation of education research. Thus, the international trend to study how textbooks affect the uptake of knowledge by the student, which is followed by…

Aubry Kradolfer, Carla; Geiss, Michael – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Funding, administration and social goals are aspects of school policy that are highly interrelated. No country has achieved universal primary education without relying mainly on taxes. This had profound consequences for educational administration. As soon as schools were no longer subsidised by private backers or ecclesiastical funds,…

Bosche, Anne – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
The present article investigates what consequences for educational policy and/or educational administration were drawn from the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. A popular diagnosis in political science is that political decision-makers were pushed into a "reactive" role. In the context of a general "planning euphoria", and an…

Kowalczyk, Jamie A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article explores the appearance of new teacher roles within the Italian education discourse, in particular focusing on official and scholarly texts from 1990 to 2015. During the second half of this period, the conceptual borders of two distinct roles, the intercultural teacher and the cultural mediator, begin to blur so that all teachers are…

Ydesen, Christian; Myers, Kevin – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article approaches debates about how the history of the post-1945 English welfare state might be written. It argues that professionals' interventions on immigrant children can serve as a prism for understanding the crafting of the modern English welfare state. In this sense the article engages with the narrative concerning the resilience of a…

Padovan-Özdemir, Marta – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Modern welfare states emerged as a response to the social question and were crafted through the educationalisation of society engendering a need for a variety of professionals who could take care of citizens of concern. This article revisits the social question in a post-1970 Danish context of a growing non-western immigrant and refugee population…

Depaepe, Marc; Hulstaert, Karen – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
This keynote consists of two parts. The first part offers some general observations from the past related to the power (and eventual powerlessness) of education. The aim is to create a framework with which the specific case, discussed in the second part, must be interpreted. Furthermore, it is emphasised that almost every pedagogical intervention…

Vinovskis, Maris A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Early American historians provided the public and policy-makers with information about US history that provided both entertainment and policy suggestions. As American historians became more professionalised in the early twentieth century, they concentrated more on their own scholarly concerns and less on policy-relevant writings. In recent…

Nguyen, Thuy-Phuong – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
From 1955 to 1975, the French and the Americans were both active in the educational field in South Vietnam, but their objectives were different. The French were concerned with preserving their influence with the Vietnamese elites and relied on the Mission Culturelle--the heir of the colonial Direction of Education--and its prestigious high…

Today, the International School of Geneva is known as the world's oldest and largest private international school, having opened in 1924 under the name "International School". Many schools have attempted to foster an international environment in a general sense; this school is the first to claim an "inter-national" identity…

Collelldemont, Eulàlia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
In recent years, visual records have come to be seen as important sources of information in the study of education and its history. However, most of the images used in this way simply provide a glimpse--though admittedly a precise one--of only one moment in the educational process. Graphic verisimilitude is not only to be found in these images; it…

Southwell, Myriam – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
The consolidation of the Argentine Federal Government by the 1870s aimed to modernise local society, establish state institutions and reach political stabilisation. Building a modern schooling system articulated both utopia and bureaucracy by establishing the use of knowledge as an instrument of social intervention, vindicating and legitimising…
