This chapter explores to what extent the global agenda of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is an imagined global agenda or, in fact, an extrapolated cultural agenda imposing culturally-imprinted views of the world as a whole, including the framing of its bearers (the sustainable eco-citizen). Two questions are of interest here: How did environmentalism become simultaneously globalized and educationalized issues? What happens when this practice, justified as a global movement, is translated in a specific national culture? We illustrate this by referring to the example of WWF and WWF teaching materials for ESD that were developed in the specific Swedish context. [less ▲]

Whereas school laws and syllabi are designed to normatively define the ideal of the future citizen, the actual organization of the school shows precisely what it means to be a current citizen of a particular nation-state. The thesis of the paper is that within the actual organizations of the school systems we find organizational rules and practices that represent traditions (understood as handed-down cultural models of order or cultural systems of reasoning) that are older than new school laws and syllabi. And when the latter are “imported,” they are always translated into these systems of reasoning. These handed-down systems of reasoning and organizing ensured cultural continuities, allowing the new school systems to be established in the context of nation building. These cultural continuities, expressed foremost in the organizational structures of the school, allowed the new school laws or the syllabi to be successfully implemented in the first place. [less ▲]

Este documento parte del supuesto de la aparición de una cultura pedagogizada durante los últimos 200 años, según la cual los problemas sociales que son percibidos se traducen en desafíos educativos. En consecuencia, tanto la investigación como las instituciones educativas crecieron, y una política educativa surgió como resultado de las negociaciones entre los profesionales, los investigadores y los responsables políticos. El documento mantiene que algunas experiencias específicas ocurridas durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, provocaron un cambio fundamental en el papel social y cultural de los círculos académicos, que condujo a una cultura tecnocrática caracterizada por una mayor confianza mostrada hacia los expertos en lugar de a la práctica profesional (es decir, los maestros y administradores). Bajo este cambio tecnocrático, en primer lugar surgió un sistema tecnológico de razonamiento, que luego fue sustituido por un “paradigma” médico. El nuevo paradigma condujo a una medicalización de la investigación social, en el cual se da por sentado un particular entendimiento organicista de la realidad social, y su investigación se realiza bajo las más discutibles premisas. El resultado es que pese a la creciente importancia de la investigación en general, este cambio expertocrático y médico de la investigación social dio lugar a una reducción drástica de las oportunidades reformistas al privar a las partes interesadas de una amplia gama de investigación educativa, experiencia profesional, sentido común, y debate político.

As contemporary education becomes increasingly tied to global economic power, national school systems attempting to influence one another inevitably confront significant tensions caused by differences in heritage, politics, and formal structures. Trajectories in the Development of Modern School Systems provides a comprehensive theoretical and empirical critique of the reform movements that seek to homogenize schooling around the world. Informed by historical and sociological insight into a variety of nations and eras, these in-depth case studies reveal how and why sweeping, convergent reform agendas clash with specific institutional policies, practices, and curricula. Countering current theoretical models which fail to address the potential pressures born from these challenging isomorphic developments, this book illuminates the cultural idiosyncrasies that both produce and problematize global reform efforts and offers a new way of understanding curriculum as a manifestation of national identity.

The journal «Bildungsgeschichte / International Journal for the Historiography of Education» is a bilingual forum (German and English) that aims to provide for, strengthen, and further develop both meta-theoretical and specific-topic discussions. At the metatheoretical level, the journal promotes the de-nationalization of research and its central research questions, calls into question both «great theories» of history and epochalizations, and pursues the combination of historical and comparative research approaches in the field of education. At the specific content level, it focuses on the rise and development of the school system; nationalization and internationalization of education policy; history of science, history of education, and history of theory since the Renaissance; and issues in historiography.

Sowohl die öffentlichen als auch die innerprofessionellen Diskussionen und die sich daraus ergebenden curricularen Verhandlungen belegen, dass die Schulpolitik in Luxemburg während des Ersten Weltkriegs als ein Mittel zur Konstruktion einer neutralen, pazifistischen, alternativen Realität verstanden wurde, mit Hilfe derer soziale Gegebenheiten und aus dem Krieg resultierende Probleme reguliert werden konnten. Dennoch zeigte die Curriculumspolitik der Nachkriegszeit, dass solche optimistischen Konzeptionen auf Dauer nicht beizubehalten waren. [less ▲]

The educational turn of the late eighteenth century, nation building of the nineteenth century, and efforts to promote global unity after the two world wars had effects not only on educational organizations, policies, and materials, but also on the manner with which the major actors in the world of education – namely, teachers – were trained. The leitmotifs that emerged in teacher training reflected the major cultural concerns of each era: in the nineteenth century, this was national uniqueness and supremacy; in the postwar period, it was internationalization and global standardization. These leitmotifs were associated with the emergence of particular academic subfields and heavily shaped pedagogical ideals. In the era of nation building, the history of education dominated teacher education. In the context of the Cold War, teacher training was aligned with a new internationalist and scientific paradigm.

This chapter engages with emergence of the “social” as a distinguishable category and argues that from its very beginning, the “social” bore different meanings according to the different visions of political life: The “social” was obviously culturally biased, but it mostly showed up in a generalized or globalized “theory.” The chapter demonstrates this cultural construction of the “social” with its temptation to globalization, taking the example of the “social question” and the academic reaction toward the “social question,” especially in connection with sociology and the educational sciences, by comparing France, Germany, and the United States.

This paper asks how educational accountability could possibly have become a core concept in educational policy within the 10 years after the Sputnik shock. This paper argues that this introduction included a Second World War and Cold War ideology of problem solving, the faith in experts and some skepticism towards democracy, and a considerable Trust in Numbers (Theodore Porter) combined with a “‘horse race’ mentality.” This article will reconstruct that first part of this transformation after Sputnik, that is, the rise of the new faith in experts, the rise of educational planners, and statistics. The thesis it demonstrates is that this process was possible mainly by a specific rhetoric that was developed as a core means of the change management. This rhetoric was able to level cultural and national differences, and this allowed these new ideals of educational governance to become accepted by the participants and thus to be implemented in their respective places. The example is the period leading up to 1965, when the individual member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) had to take over the funding of educational programs that had previously been funded by the OECD (and that means it was funded to 50% by the United States). This ideology was transported and disseminated by a specific rhetoric that bypassed politically taboo themes and that covered up the clear strategies of governance. This paved the way for the process of standardization and the implementation of not only a formal adaptation of the organization of education but also, and in particular, specific ways of educational planning, such as statistics, and with them specific ideologies of how society and its citizens should be shaped. Only a few years later on, educational accountability had become a “normal” part in educational policy with a tendency to be treated as fetish. The thesis is demonstrated in five steps. First, the papers sheds some light on the broader ideological context of the early years of the OECD, that is, of its educational commitment as an expression of a highly educationalized Cold War culture. Then it focuses on the specific rhetoric developed in the think tanks and transnational organizations, settled in between science and politics, which includes the exclusion of taboo themes. Next to the analyses of the exclusion practices the rhetoric is identified as disguising, that is, suggesting help and support, but in fact creating coercing realities with hardly any way out. In the fourth step these rhetorical practices are being analyzed in one major project of the early OECD, with six Mediterranean countries at the center, in order to check in the final section the sustainability of the early efforts in educational planning after a fundamental revision of the OECD activities in 1964.

During the past decade “accountability” has emerged as the master rationale for education reform. Given its ubiquity and central role in current policy and practice, it is almost possible to forget that even 15 years ago the term was hardly ever used and accountability, in today’s sense, was virtually a nonissue. That is surprising given the certainty with which advocates claim accountability as the needle’s eye through which the camel of public education reform must pass. How has this change come to pass? How has accountability emerged as the master rationale for contemporary education reform? How has it become the accepted justification for policies from the construction of centralized curricula, to teacher evaluation schemes based on student test scores, to government takeovers of schools that “fail to improve”?
