Yesterday's schools : readings in Maltese educational history Collection home page Statistics


"Historical and comparative approaches have returned with a vengeance to the educational scene. More than ever we feel the need to learn the profound historicity of educational realities and to find our place in a world made up of multiple identities. History and comparison open our vision, enabling us to ask original questions, to search for different meanings and to imagine new possibilities. The book edited by Ronald G. Sultana is part of this movement showing a fresh interest in history. It is an instructive and thought-provoking book with many excellent chapters, and will undoubtedly prove to be an important tool for students and teachers at national level, as well as for international historians and scholars of comparative education." - Antonio Novoa, Professor of History of Education, University of Lisbon.
