  • TITLE: “Education Ltd.”—The Influence of British Earl of Cromer on the Education System in Egypt (1883-1907)

    AUTHORS: Yossi Maman, Janan Faraj Falah

    KEYWORDS: History, Education, British Council, Egypt

    JOURNAL NAME: Advances in Historical Studies, Vol.7 No.2, June 14, 2018

    ABSTRACT: This research focuses on a historic issue: the influence of the Earl of Cromer (who served as the British Consul-General in Egypt) on the local education system. The research reflects an inter-disciplinary approach—education and history. Coping with the issue was done via examination of the declared educational goals and the activities in practice as well as the local population’s responses to the activities. Allegedly, Cromer failed in his attempted reforms in Egyptian education. This article attempts to examine the issue from a process-holistic approach attributing meaning to all actions taken by Cromer in the education system. The major leading goal of this research is the examination of the education system in Egypt during the British occupation, when the Earl of Cromer served as the British Consul-General from September 11, 1883 to the end of his term on May 6, 1907. Cromer is claimed to have ailed his reforms in Egyptian education, and so this article will attempt to separate the educational goals set by the British and Cromer and the actual practice in the field. We will also relate to the local population’s responses to these activities.
