Räisänen, Mirka – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
Finnish school teachers are unlike their colleagues in many countries, for their ethos and skills have traditionally formed the basis for a profession which has been very loyal to the state and to the changing educational ideologies of the government. Critical historical periods of wars and social revolutions have, however, produced--to a small…

Collelldemont, Eulàlia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
