Jordan: A Study of the Educational System of Jordan and a Guide to the Academic Placement of Students from Jordan in Educational Institutions of the United States.
Parker, Garland G.
The educational system of Jordan is described, and placement recommendations concerning students who want to study in the United States are presented. After describing the setting and structure of Jordanian education, attention is directed to curricula and enrollments, undergraduate student admissions, higher education, and graduate education and admissions. Jordanian schools are classified on the basis of support, level or cycle of operation, and curricula. Both government and private schools in Jordan often carry the designation of "college" in their names, even though they are only secondary schools. The curriculum in the elementary, preparatory, and secondary levels is essentially academic. Information is provided on the subjects taught and class periods per week assigned to them in the compulsory school cycle as well as in the academic secondary cycle for 1966-1967. Grading systems of the government secondary schools and the private schools are also considered, along with preparatory and general secondary education examinations. Brief information is also provided on specific colleges, including the University of Jordan and Bir-Zeit College. (SW)
