Éducateur et bulletin corporatif : organe hebdomadaire de la Société Pédagogique de la Suisse Romande

L'Educateur (The educator) is the official voice of the Syndicat des enseignants romands (Teachers' Union of Western Switzerland, SER). The magazine was founded in 1865 by Alexander Daguet with the objective of giving teachers of Western Switzerland a publication for their field. It has appeared without interruption since that date. The Educateur publishes articles on the theory and practice of pedagogy and helps to create a feeling of solidarity among teachers. These wide-ranging objectives have led to many changes during its history.

From 1921 L'Educateur cooperated closely with the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Institute (IJJR) and included the institute's own publication, l'Intermédiaire des Educateurs. (the Educators' Intermediaries). A corporate newsletter was devoted to union issues. The end of cooperation with the IJJR in 1932 was marked by the merger of the two publications. From 1981 to 1995 the professional and union aspects were separated again, some appearing in l'Educateur - revue (Education - Review) and others in the l'Educateur syndical (trade union educator).

Since 1996 L'Educateur is published in its current form. The magazine has a web page at http://www.le-ser.ch/educateur/index.html

The Syndicat des enseignants romands (Teachers' Union of Western Switzerland, SER) and before that the Société pédagogique romande (Pedagogical Society of Western Switzerland SPR) and the Cartel romand des associations du corps enseignant secondaire et professionnel (Western Swiss cartel of secondary and vocational teachers' associations CARESP) is a very old trade union and professional association. In 1864, an association was established with the name Société des instituteurs romands (Primary teachers' association of Western Switzerland). It became the Société pédagogique romande (Teachers' association of Western Switzerland) in 1889, when female primary school teachers were admitted as members of the association. In 1998 it merged with the CARESP to become the SER. The publication of a journal is stipulated in the union's statutes.
