Aubry Kradolfer, Carla; Geiss, Michael – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Funding, administration and social goals are aspects of school policy that are highly interrelated. No country has achieved universal primary education without relying mainly on taxes. This had profound consequences for educational administration. As soon as schools were no longer subsidised by private backers or ecclesiastical funds,…

Mitch, David – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Historians of the rise of popular education have often emphasised the role of national governments as sources of funding. However, for the case of England work by W.K. Jordan among others with probate records suggests that by the English Civil War substantial philanthropic funding was available for education. The presence of this philanthropy…

Bosche, Anne – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
The present article investigates what consequences for educational policy and/or educational administration were drawn from the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. A popular diagnosis in political science is that political decision-makers were pushed into a "reactive" role. In the context of a general "planning euphoria", and an…

Knudsen, Andrew T. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
When historians discuss the impact of examinations on elementary education in mid-Victorian England and Wales they typically focus on the Revised Code of 1862. The Revised Code is famous for instituting a policy of "payment-by-results" for teachers in state-supported voluntary schools. "Payment-by-results" made government…

Kowalczyk, Jamie A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article explores the appearance of new teacher roles within the Italian education discourse, in particular focusing on official and scholarly texts from 1990 to 2015. During the second half of this period, the conceptual borders of two distinct roles, the intercultural teacher and the cultural mediator, begin to blur so that all teachers are…

Carmody, Brendan Patrick – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This paper will argue that the state-aided Catholic school in Zambia has contributed significantly to the development of the country over the years. However, because of its enmeshment in the state system of education it has inadvertently become an instrument of underdevelopment. It is structurally complicit in alienating some of the poorest…

Ydesen, Christian; Myers, Kevin – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article approaches debates about how the history of the post-1945 English welfare state might be written. It argues that professionals' interventions on immigrant children can serve as a prism for understanding the crafting of the modern English welfare state. In this sense the article engages with the narrative concerning the resilience of a…

Padovan-Özdemir, Marta – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Modern welfare states emerged as a response to the social question and were crafted through the educationalisation of society engendering a need for a variety of professionals who could take care of citizens of concern. This article revisits the social question in a post-1970 Danish context of a growing non-western immigrant and refugee population…

Brosnan, AnneMarie – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
During the American Civil War and Reconstruction era, 1861-1876, formerly enslaved men and women demanded access to education. Aided by northern white missionaries, free blacks and some southern whites, freed men and women throughout the American South built schoolhouses, hired teachers and purchased textbooks. Some of these textbooks were…

Burbules, Nicholas C. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
This essay reviews the changing functions, and effects, of citation systems in scholarly research as they move from a range of uses primarily oriented around knowledge networking and epistemic validation, to their use as a set of metrics oriented around evaluating and rewarding certain kinds of academic performance (e.g. "impact…

Smeyers, Paul; Fendler, Lynn – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Debates in science seem to depend on referential language-games, but in other senses they do not. Language works in more complex ways, even in work that purports to be purely scientific. This article investigates the scope and limitations of language-games in educational history and theory. The study addresses concepts and pictures as examples of…

Fendler, Lynn; Smeyers, Paul – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Debates in science seem to depend on referential language-games, but in other senses they do not. This article addresses non-representational theory. It is a branch of newer approaches to cultural geography that strive to get a handle on spatial relationships not by representing them, but rather by presenting them. In this case, present connotes…

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…

They can be found in several places in the textbook in both its textual and pictorial…

Forsyth, Hannah – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
The history of universities in the twentieth century is, at least from the perspective of growth, a massive success. Australian higher education is no exception. Prior to the Second World War, Australia had six universities and approximately 10,500 students. Now there are in excess of one million students attending 39 institutions. In each phase…
