The development of teacher education in Saudi Arabia had first to be related to the religious basis of society and to the developing social, economic and scholastic systems. Upon this basis the development of the education and recruitment of men and women teachers was considered in detail. Special stress has been laid upon organisation and control, content and methodology, and the social status of teachers. Against the social background of the seclusion of women, the difficulties and inducements of their recruitment are brought out. This is followed by an examination of the provision for in-service education for teachers and of its programmes. Having thus traversed the ground, an interpretation and assessment are then offered of the achievements and limitations, covering organisation, content, metho dology and the causes of wastage. Finally, proposals for future development have been suggested. These are broad outlines of the basic requirements, leaving room for modification according to changing needs and circumstances. In particular, suggestions are made regarding the establishment of central bodies to bring about more systematic development in the fields of curriculum, educational research and teacher education, the development of content and methodology, and the reorganisation of the provision of primary teacher education. These proposals are the natural outcome of the study itself, reinforced by personal experience and judgement.
