Teodoro, António – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
This article examines the OECD's role in the construction of education policies in Portugal after the Second World War up to the Carnation Revolution (1974). For a large part of the twentieth century (1926-1974), Portugal lived under a nationalist dictatorship, with elements that were on a par with the European fascism. After analysing the genesis…

Kakkar, Ankur – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
As the British expanded their dominions in India, political and administrative needs made it imperative for them to acquire more information about their subjects.

Beauvais, Clémentine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article pays attention to the regional embeddedness of early research on giftedness, looking principally at the works of Lewis Terman and his peers, between the 1910s and 1930s. The rhetoric, ideology, and aesthetics of giftedness in those early works were, I argue, stamped by the context and imaginary of Progressive-Era California and shaped…

Martínez Boom, Alberto – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Education is unquestionably a common necessity. Social movements demand education, as does social mobility, and may well be the expression of utopia. Individuals accept education as an expression of their own desire and validate its intervention as a legitimate criterion for differentiation. Few social sectors do not demand schooling for…

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.

Elmersjö, Henrik Åström – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
During the interwar period, a number of organisations started to look into education as part of an attempt to understand how nationalism was fuelled through education and to what extent it had forced the outbreak of the Great War. In response to nationalism and a perceived need for reformation of national narratives, the school subjects of history…

Viñao, Antonio – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Until around 10 years ago, the conventional wisdom in educational historiography held that the start of the Civil War (1936-1939), marking as it did the placing of education at the service of the war effort, involved a rupture, in both the Republican government and the "rebel" or Franco camp, with the preceding years as to the…
