Hoegaerts, Josephine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
At the heart of the nineteenth-century educational soundscape lies a paradox. Whilst "modern" classrooms generally strived for orderly silence, the goal of its educational practices was the production of competent "citizens". Middle-class boys in particular were expected to acquire a voice fit for business, the professions, or…

Caruso, Marcelo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014

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".

Bianchini, Paolo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2011
Between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries a new method for the provision of popular education emerged in Europe. The Sardinian Kingdom represents a good example of this evolution: in 1729, Piedmont was the first state in Europe to launch a "modern" educational policy with the creation of a public school system. Education was…

Toloudis, Nicholas – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2010
By the time of the July Revolution of 1830, the matter of training elementary school teachers had become important in French politics. But the literature on teacher training does not properly examine the linkage between training institutions and professionalism. The standard narrative of the development of primary education suggests that the July…

One of the early forms of intercultural education was the upbringing of children by foreign governesses, who appeared on the European labour market during the seventeenth century. In Germany families of the gentry and the wealthy middle-classes began, since the eighteenth century, to copy the upbringing of princely children. They too wanted their…

Caruso, Marcelo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2007
The monitorial system of education was the most promising device in the field of primary education at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

Carpentier, Vincent – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2006
Earlier studies of France, Germany and the UK suggest that a common framework exists to explain the relationship between public expenditure on education and economic growth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This article shows that while a similar relationship exists in the USA, US policies were particularly committed to the educational…

Anderson, Robert – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2004
The title echoes the well-known phrase "the idea of the university", and European universities have always been seen as institutions with a strong international dimension, developing according to common patterns. In their case, it was the "Humboldtian" model embodied in the University of Berlin founded in 1810 which prevailed.…
