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.

The present article investigates what consequences for educational policy and/or educational administration were drawn from the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s.

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.

An examination of recent gender scholarship demonstrates how a gendered lens has contributed to the debates on society, the state and education. Using local and international examples mostly from about 1880 to 1930, this paper will investigate how gendered perceptions coloured the provision of education, what we mean by "the state" and…

Mesquita, Leopoldo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
The business side of the Lancasterian system of mass schooling has been highlighted by some researchers. However, this feature is usually considered of minor importance compared to other dimensions of that system, namely the social control role of popular education in early nineteenth-century Britain. The present surge of projects and mechanisms…

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…

Kramer, Hans Martin – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2007
Education reforms during the Allied Occupation of Japan (1945-1952) have traditionally been perceived as having been strongly shaped by U.S. American influence.
