Zhou, Ying – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021

Pruneri, Fabio – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021

Beadie, Nancy – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
The economic and environmental significance of school land policy in the United States has yet to be imagined, let alone systematically studied, by scholars.
