Knowledge of foreign school systems played a major role in the development of the Danish school, as reform ideas that originated abroad were transferred into a domestic context. This transfer of global knowledge and practices was supported by the grants awarded by the Ministry of Education, enabling Danish teachers to embark on educational journeys at home and abroad. In the paper, the journeys are analysed as an example of educational borrowing to determine the exact nature of the new, inspirational concepts and knowledge to be acquired and to ascertain which countries were perceived as being educationally progressive.
