van Gijlswijk, Dick – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
The declining economy of the Dutch Republic obliged city governments in the eighteenth century to take measures to undo the effects of the social deterioration.

This article aims to explain the ultimate organisation of the Argentinian educational system during the 1870s as a result of the 1873 world economic crisis, which led, among other measures, to budget cuts.

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…

Vangrunderbeek, Hans; Delheye, Pascal – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
During the 1960s and 1970s, "traditional" secondary educational systems in various Western European countries made way for comprehensive education curricula. In contrast to the reforms within the "intellectual" subjects, the field of physical education (PE) remained largely underexposed in research. This study focuses on PE…

Rockwell, Elsie; Vera, Eugenia Roldan – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
ISCHE 33 was convened in San Luis Potosi to re-examine a relationship--that between society, education and the state--that had been largely taken for granted in official histories of education of modern nations. This theme was inspired by the bicentenary celebrations of the relatively early nineteenth-century movements (from 1804 to 1824) that…

Filho, Luciano Mendes de Faria; Inacio, Marcilaine Soares – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
Over the last 200 years in Brazil, the notion of "public" has been established to mean the same as the notion of "state". Sergio Buarque de Holanda and, more recently, Marilena Chaui point out that the very old tradition of the appropriation of public goods by the private sector has been updated. However, the understanding of…

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 present surge of projects and mechanisms…
