Johnston, Ron – History of Education, 2019
Geography emerged as an academic discipline in British universities in response to demands for trained teachers of the subject in the country's burgeoning secondary schools and their curricula formed a seamless transition from one to the other.

Claeys, Anna – History of Education, 2018
In 2016, Britain voted to leave the European Union: over-65s were more than twice as likely to vote for Brexit as under-25s, amidst campaign rhetoric steeped in colonial nostalgia. This article explores how this generation was taught in many English state schools to imagine Britain's place in the world during a period of rapid decolonisation from…

del Pozo Andrés, María del Mar; Braster, Sjaak – History of Education, 2018
The Dalton Plan is well known in educational historiography. But there are also unanswered questions such as: how is it possible that a pedagogical experiment begun in the United States in February 1920 had, by the month of March, already come to be known first hand by a visiting English educator? The objective in this article is to find an…

Fleming, Brian; Harford, Judith – History of Education, 2016
In 1831, the British Government decided to become directly involved in the provision of elementary education in Ireland, a country over which it then had jurisdiction.

Eigenmann, Philipp; Geiss, Michael – History of Education, 2016
In the history of vocational education and training, apprentices seldom feature as actors. They are also rarely mentioned among those affected by economic conditions and political measures.

Kavanagh, Matthew – History of Education, 2014
The Popular Front line made the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) a more hospitable place for "brain workers." The emphasis the line placed on mass ideological and cultural struggle against fascism meant that they became important allies to be won for the working class. As the principal transmitters of ideology and culture to the…

van der Ploeg, Piet – History of Education, 2014
In the Netherlands there are 400 Dalton schools, while Dalton education has all but disappeared elsewhere, including in its country of origin: the USA. Following a brief period in the 1920s in which it enjoyed strong international interest, it disappeared from the scene. How can it be that the Dalton Plan still exists only in the Netherlands? This…

Burger, Kaspar – History of Education, 2014
The historical developments of infant schools in Great Britain and "salles d'asile" in France--both precursors of present-day preschools--were interconnected.

However, though impressive in scale, Cecil Rhodes's foundation was not the first to bring colonial students to Britain. Over the course of the previous half-century, governments, universities and…

Brewis, Georgina – History of Education, 2009
This paper considers the voluntary work of girls in late Victorian and Edwardian Britain.

The paper uses records of several little-known girls' service leagues including Time and Talents, Girl's Realm Guild of Service,…
