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'…

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.

The rise during the 1950s of a discourse centred on "development," together with the elaboration of the concept of "human capital," led to an altogether new paradigm of economic modernisation.

Groves, Tamar – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2011
Paulo Freire's pedagogy was developed in reaction to the state of "periphery" of illiterate farmers in Brazil and Chile. However, his thinking, which illuminated capitalism's oppressive nature in the classrooms, was enthusiastically accepted in the "centre" and he became a global point of reference for social action. In this…

In 1932, the Irish government, facing an economic downturn, introduced a marriage ban which required that female primary school teachers were required to resign on marriage.

The Kindergarten Training College in Adelaide, South Australia, was established in 1907 with…

Raman, Santhiram R.; Sua, Tan Yao – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2010
Ethnic segregation has become an emerging feature in Malaysia's education system even though the institutional role of education should have been a unifying force for the country's multi-ethnic society. The underlying problem is that, at all levels of education provision in Malaysia, alternative streams are allowed to coexist alongside mainstream…

This article takes as its starting point a strike among African trainee literacy workers in the Northern Territories of the Gold Coast (now Ghana) in 1952. While the existing literature tends to concentrate on the tensions and contradictions in British colonial education policy, this article uses the strike to investigate how these agendas were…

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. The occupation bureaucracy, as the dominant element of a triangle of power together with the Ministry of Education and the Japanese Education Reform Committee, has been seen as the main…

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…

Kallaway, Peter – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2005
Contemporary educational policy discourse in South Africa that seeks to serve the poor and address equity issues needs to engage with the roots of twentieth-century social reform debates if it meets its goals. One of the weaknesses of the templates for reform at the present time is that they often fail to engage with progressive traditions which…
