Abstract:The education dispensed in Somalia during the 20th century has varied from the precolonial to the colonial period in the context of civilian and military governments, and the civil war. The operation of Koranic schools is described along with their importance in the traditional system of education. Despite the development of secular schools, the dugsi still exist since the civil war and have changed toward becoming seminaries providing religious and nonreligious instruction.
