Historical Change in the Production and Legitimization of Education Statistics in Switzerland


Ruoss, Thomas (2013). Historical Change in the Production and Legitimization of Education Statistics in Switzerland. European Educational Research Journal, 12(1):95-107.

Abstract

Internationalisation as a factor in the impetus for and establishment of education statistics is analysed, taking the example of Switzerland in a long-term perspective. The case of Switzerland shows that historically, international comparisons depended on the nationalisation of statistics' responsibility. This nationalisation of education statistics' authority was itself closely connected with the demand for the domestic availability of statistics from the sub-central regions. This demand was in turn coupled with the structural challenges in the education system caused by its expansion and the heterogeneous degrees of institutionalisation of education statistics
