The present study is focused on the reconstruction of the historical context of Greek primary education from 1977 to 1982, interpreting the inspectors’ essays by the theoretical framework of classroom history and the theory of educationalization. The curriculum of the time as a tool of ideological orientation is classified and evaluated relative to its use as transformational mechanism within the educational process. The conclusions of the study indicate that the above theoretical framework is corroborated and the everyday classroom practices were an after-effect of the dominant role of teachers in the school culture.
