The school manuals for the Greek language course of Greek Primary schools during the 2nd half of the 20th century were the subject of intense political interest. The use of one politically approved school manual, written for and ordered by the Government, indicates the wish of controlling the educational system. It can thus be supported that the language course rather constituted a course of political and social education, reflecting the existing state ideology of each period. The present paper attempts to detect the idea of state and political institutions within the language handbooks for the two last grades of primary schools since 1954 and its evolution during the post-dictatorship period.
