Giudici, Anja; Grizelj, Sandra – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017

Brühwiler, Ingrid – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
For centuries, teachers have complained about their salaries. In the Stapfer inquiry of 1799, some teachers made remarks about financial issues, particularly their low incomes.

Praz, Anne Francoise – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2006

As a result of federalism, each state--called a canton--worked out its own school system in relative independence. How can various political and religious environments generate different educational systems according to gender? Which factors promote or…
