  • Between open and internal privatization: the Argentine educational system
           from 1940 through 2010

    • Authors: Veronica Gottau, Mauro Carlos Moschetti
      Pages: 112 - 133
      Abstract: Abstract: The educational system of Argentina has undergone a process of decentralization along with a steady growth in private schools enrolment. This complex process is usually subsumed under the general concept of ‘privatization’. We have considered it necessary to provide a deeper understanding of the multiple dimensions this process of privatization encompasses. In this article we intend to analyze and reflect upon the transformations of the Argentine educational system and to understand the specific levels and aspects where privatization has taken place. We note that the public and the private sectors seem to have experienced divergent trajectories with compromising effects in terms of equity and social cohesion. We argue that the uneasy coexistence of a deregulated independent private sector and a hyperregulated public sector is the result of a partial and inadequate implementation of a public-private partnership scheme.

  • Filipinos in the U.S.: Historical, Social, and Educational Experiences

    • Authors: Susan J. Paik, Shirlie Mae Mamaril Choe, Matthew A. Witenstein
      Pages: 134 - 160
      Abstract: As the second largest Asian American group, Filipinos have had a long history in the United States, with unique historical, social, and educational experiences. The purpose of this article is to better understand current Filipino American communities and educational experiences by examining the historical context of their immigration. Based on an adapted model of incorporation and literature review, the article examines government policies, societal reception, co-ethnic communities, as well as other barriers and opportunities both before and after the Immigration Act of 1965. These additional barriers and opportunities, such as education, occupation, class status, language ability, settlement patterns and time of arrival influenced their acculturation into mainstream society. Their distinct immigration history is also complicated due to centuries of colonization by Spain and later the U.S. Pre-1965 immigrants in the U.S. had a harder time in general; post-1965 immigrants had better government and societal reception overall, but they still encountered difficulty throughout their immigration history. Pre-1965 Filipino communities were stronger often serving their economic, cultural and social needs, but have become more dispersed over time as Filipinos have become less reliant on their co-ethnic networks. Their English-speaking ability, educational backgrounds, and professional skills have helped them to navigate mainstream America. Despite their overall success, there is research showing mixed educational achievement levels across later generations. The Filipino community is steadily growing and more research and support are needed to understand why educational levels vary across Filipino American students. Historical contexts can provide a comprehensive lens to understand current educational issues.

  • On the beginnings of the Hungarian University of Economics, or the Karl
           Marx University of Economic Sciences in Budapest

    • Authors: Ales Skrivan, Andrej Toth
      Pages: 161 - 187
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to describe in detail the beginnings of the Hungarian University of Economics, or the Karl Marx University of Economics in Budapest established in 1948 as the first Marxist university in Hungary. The study is based especially on the research in the State Archives of the Hungarian National Archives in Budapest and in the Archives of the Corvinus University of Budapest in the frame of broad research on the beginnings and the development of higher education of economic disciplines in the Central Europe. The study presents the initial period of the first separate economic university in Hungary on the background of the Hungarian Working People’s Party to get the higher education in country under its control. It is also summarized the original organizational structure of the Budapest’s University of Economics and its staff structure controlled by the Hungarian Working People’s Party as a party gradually taking over the country’s political power into its own hands at the turn of 1948 and 1949.

  • La Influencia sobre los Estudiantes del Profesorado Crítico del
           Tardofranquismo: el Caso de las Ciencias Sociales

    • Authors: Carlos Fuertes Muñoz
      Pages: 188 - 194
      Abstract: Resumen. En este texto pretendemos reflexionar sobre el avance de las actitudes sociales críticas entre el profesorado durante la última etapa de dictadura franquista, analizando diversos factores que favorecieron su importante influencia en la concienciación crítica de los estudiantes, una cuestión escasamente estudiada. A partir de un análisis de testimonios de estudiantes y profesores centrado en Valencia, la perspectiva adoptada privilegia la exposición de ejemplos concretos que nos permitirán, desde metodologías cualitativas próximas a la microhistoria, comprender con mayor profundidad la particular influencia crítica del profesorado de ciencias sociales y humanidades. En conjunto, este trabajo pone de manifiesto la importancia en el cambio de actitudes de la juventud estudiante del tardofranquismo, no solo de factores como los cambios socioculturales, el mayor contacto con el exterior o la visibilización cotidiana de las asambleas, las manifestaciones y la represión, sino también de la fundamental influencia crítica de estos sectores del profesorado.Abstract. In this text we aim to reflect on the progress of critical attitudes between the teachers during the last stage of Franco dictatorship, a phenomenon poorly integrated into the debate on social attitudes during the Franco regime. Particularly, on the basis of an analysis focused in Valencia of testimonies, political reports and bibliography, we analyze its important influence on the critical awareness of students, paying particular attention to the significant impact of teachers of social sciences and humanities.
