Report on the Tribal Schools of Fars Province. White Tents in the Mountains.
A historical case study is presented of the creation of elementary schools for the nomadic tribes of Fars Province in southern Iran (Persia). A brief historical review of the educational opportunities and socioeconomic background of the Fars tribes is given. Additionally, the gradual expansion of the impact of bringing education to the previously uneducated tribes is traced. The procedures used and assistance received while creating the new tribal educational system are described, and the influence of the American educational system upon a foreign and socially different culture is evidenced.
