Abstract [en]

The rise of mass schooling is certainly one of the absolutely fundamental developments of the last three centuries. Today, schooling is a global institution, both as a normative principle and as an organizational reality. The chapters collected in Classroom Struggle explore the early stages of this development through analyses of elementary school teaching in ten countries during the nineteenth century. While each chapter focuses on national or local settings, the volume as a whole accomplishes an international analysis of homogeneity and variation in teaching practices. The book is consequently presented as a contribution to the still rather neglected field of transnational analysis of teaching.

The book is divided into three parts that contextualizes the history of teaching in slightly different ways. The first part, “Struggling with Political and Economic Contexts”, puts emphasis on the relationship between the societal context and educational reform; the second part, “Struggling for a Rationalized Pattern of Teaching” addresses the efforts of imposing central regulation on instruction; and the third part, “Struggling with Competing Systems of Teaching”, deals with the relationships between different teaching systems. Including ten chapters, an introduction and a postscript, this means that it is an ambitious volume that covers a wide variety of countries, contexts, time-periods and source materials. This is thus a volume that encompasses analyses of competing systems of teaching in Schleswig-Holstein in 1819-1830, an examination of the data gathered by the nation-wide Portuguese extraordinary inspection of 1875, and an analysis of the modernization of instruction in Brazil during the nineteenth century.
