Abstract

The Swedish educational commission of the mid-eighteenth century has been understood through its suggestions to reform schools and as a tool of the government to take control of the universities in a time when they were liberated from the clergy. In this article, the ambition is to bring together these two sides of the commission’s work to give a more accurate image of its problems and solutions. Both pedagogy and policy influenced the purpose of the commission, to suggest educational differentiation and to coordinate higher education with more basic instruction for the creation of an educational system stretching from schools to universities.
