Vangrunderbeek, Hans; Delheye, Pascal – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
During the 1960s and 1970s, "traditional" secondary educational systems in various Western European countries made way for comprehensive education curricula. In contrast to the reforms within the "intellectual" subjects, the field of physical education (PE) remained largely underexposed in research. This study focuses on PE…

Van Ruyskensvelde, Sarah – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
Power over education and the upcoming generations has always been an important instrument in shaping religious and secular values. As a consequence, control over schools, pupils and teachers was, particularly in periods of war, an important means for bringing about acceptance of the new regime. The aim of this paper is to discuss priest-teachers'…

Thyssen, Geert – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
This comparative analysis of Luxembourg's early school (law) system reveals the extent to which European school systems reflect "national-cultural idiosyncrasies" apart from "structural isomorphism".

Van Gorp, Angelo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2011
Propaganda is conspicuous for what it conceals and always cautious about what it reveals. Starting from the assumption that all documentaries on the Decroly School in Uccle (Brussels), the school Ovide Decroly (1871-1932) founded in 1907, are propaganda, this article tackles the question as to how to "read" this particular set of…
