From Traditional to Formal Education in the Lower Arabian Gulf, 1820-1971
Davidson, Christopher M.
History of Education, v37 n5 p633-643 Sep 2008
This article charts the development of education in the lower Arabian Gulf from its traditional beginnings in the nineteenth century to the provision of more formal schooling and eventually a ministry of education following Britain's withdrawal from the region in 1971. In order to provide a better understanding of the complexities and relative advances and setbacks to this development, special emphasis is placed on the social, economic and political context of education's trajectory; including the lower Gulf's dependent relations with its Imperial protector and its reliance on foreign educational aid from Kuwait. (Contains 51 footnotes.)
