This observation is based on interviews with former teachers who had worked in the villages in the 1940s and 1950s, who insisted that the labor-intensive agricultural economy of Cyprus could not support large numbers of secondary school graduates until the post-war period and that it was only at that time that children in poorer villages were allowed to complete their primary education.

This is particularly well-documented in the archive of the Archbishopric of the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus. See also Persianis ( 1978).

Durkheim had also seen discipline in its positive sense as the foundation for moral action. He asks rhetorically, "Must one view discipline simply as an external, palpable police force, whose single raison d'etre is to prevent certain behaviors and which, beyond such preventive action, has no other function? Or, on the contrary, may it not be, as our analysis leads us to suppose, a means sui generis of moral education, having an intrinsic value which places its own special imprint upon moral character?" Durkheim ( 1973:37).

As early as 1903, the British were accused of attempting to spread the 'gospel of mishellenism' when Director of Education Canon Newham chose Edmond About's supposedly mishellenic novel Le Roi des Montagnes as a French text for his English school students. However, it was not until the early 1950s that the term "dehellenization" [afellinismos] came into use as a fully formed explanation for the British action with regard to the schools.
