From traditional to formal education in the Lower Arabian Gulf, 1820-1971.

Davidson, Christopher M. (2008) 'From traditional to formal education in the Lower Arabian Gulf, 1820-1971.', History of education., 37 (5). pp. 633-643.


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.
