Abstract

The paper explores the expansion of the lower secondary school in Italy in the 1960s. In 1962 all lower secondary schools were eventually unified, with all subject teachers holding a degree. The elementary school teachers and their associations lost their battle to teach in these schools: in place of a postelementary school, the model of a lower secondary school with more qualified teachers was chosen. However, whilst the “Scuola media unica” represented a significant step towards a more qualified and democratic school, which welcomed children from all social classes, at the same time it did not immediately fulfil its aims.
