The 1962 Revolution is considered a turning point in recent Yemeni history. At that point the Yemen entered the world of development and change. Education is the cornerstone in the process of change, not only in the Yemen but universally. That fact prompted this study. It investigates the educational process in the Yemen, 1962-1986, particularly the actual condition of education in the Yemen, with special emphasis on socio-economic development. Several sources have been used. The most important was the interviews schedule. This study is in four main parts. The first comprises three chapters, which deal with the geographical background of the country, the history of education before 1962, and socio-economic change. The second comprises two chapters dealing with the Islamic philosophy of education and the structure of education in the Yemen. Part Three contains two chapters examining the concept of development in general, and the particular development process in the Yemen. Part Four discusses the growth and the development of education in the Yemen, 1962-1986, based upon official documents, ministerial reports, and interviews. In addition there are two further chapters. The first is an introduction, the other is the conclusion. The conclusion confirm the hypothesis that further educational development in the Yemen will require considerable effort and expenditure. Radical remedies for current problems are required, especially those concerned with shortages of teachers and administrators, and the current curriculum. Education must be freed from an over-academic pattern and made more practical and more closely related to real life and socio-economic change, satisfying the needs of the whole society. It has been seen that the only way to overcome these problems is to carry out applied educational research through the Educational Research and Development Centre so as to come up with appropriate solutions for all current educational problems. Finally, a number of recommendations and suggestions for further research have been indicated.
