Call for papers: Local and regional school history

We invite contributions to a special issue on "Local and regional school history". This special issue aims to emphasize the importance of historical studies of local activities in schools and in local or regional school policy, in order to understand and explain national and international trends and reforms in education. There is a substantial variation in how different local actors, communities and regions have handled national school policy, and furthermore there is a variation in how different countries have taken local variation into account, when executing a national school policy. We invite contributions which empirically and/or theoretically illustrate and investigate local and regional school history in relation to national reform aspirations and effects during the 19th or 20th century.
