Giudici, Anja; Grizelj, Sandra – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
By the end of the nineteenth century, the relationship between the state, language and schooling had become extremely close: a state was supposed to be "national," and a real nation was supposed to be monolingual. Following the literature on nation-building, it is because schooling was charged with the task of forming such nations that…

This paper examines prime minister Robert Menzies decision to support science education in Australian schools in 1963.

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.

Beadie, Nancy – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
After the Civil War (1861-1865), the United States faced a problem of "reconstruction" similar to that confronted by other nations at the time and familiar to the US since at least the Mexican-American War (1846-1848). The problem was one of territorial and political (re)integration: how to take territories that had only recently been…
