Zabolotna, Tetiana – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020

Pruneri, Fabio – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
In 1945, Italian society was in crisis.

Industrialisation and mass education have long been considered two main determinants in the emergence of special education, but in many formerly colonised countries, such as Taiwan, historical development did not follow along these lines.

The Sardinian Kingdom represents a good example of this evolution: in 1729, Piedmont was the first state in Europe to launch a "modern" educational policy with the creation of a public school system. Education was…

Dorn, Charles – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2008
For most educational historians, the Harold Rugg textbook controversy serves as an example of the mid-twentieth-century "assault" on progressive education. By restricting their analyses of the textbook controversy to the "rise and fall" of the progressivism paradigm, however, scholars have generally missed Americans' more measured approach to the…
