all schools in Tunisia, including religious ones. According to Perkins "Many colonial officials believed that modern education would lay the groundwork for harmonious Franco-Tunisia relations by providing a means of bridging the gap between Arabo-Islamic and European cultures". In a more pragmatic vein, schools teaching modern subjects in a European language would produce a cadre of Tunisians with the skills necessary to staff the growing
in the cities, in which various religious denominations continued to provide elementary schools. The Franco-Arab schools attained somewhat greater success in rural areas but never enrolled more than a fifth of Tunisia's eligible students. At the summit of the modern education system was Kheireddine's Sadiki College. Highly competitive examinations regulated admission to Sadiki, but its graduates were almost assured government positions by virtue of their training in modern subjects and French.

World War II birth_place Sousse, French Protectorate of Tunisia (French protectorate of Tunisia) (now Tunisian Republic (Tunisia)) death_date After many discussions during the 1920s, in 1935 the Franco-Italian Agreement was signed between Benito Mussolini and Pierre Laval, which included a provision under which Italy would receive the Aouzou strip, which was to be added to Libya. Hodder, Lloyd, McLachlan (1998). ''Land-locked states of Africa and Asia, Volume 2'', p. 32. Frank Cass, London, Great Britain. France's other motivations in concluding this agreement with Italy were to settle the status of the Italian Tunisian community (Italian Tunisians) in its protectorate of the country (French protectorate of Tunisia), to remove irredentist Italian claims (Italia irredenta) to Nice, and to prevent Italy from growing closer to Nazi Germany by keeping it closely aligned with France and the United Kingdom (the Stresa Front).

He opposed "progressive" teaching methods and what he perceived to be lax discipline both in modern education and in the wider society, and at Highbury Grove he introduced an unfashionably traditional regime, with strictly enforced uniforms (school uniform), caning for misbehaviour, and a house system. This proved so popular with local parents that the school was consistently oversubscribed. Boyson, Rhodes, ''Oversubscribed: The Story of Highbury Grove School'', London, 1974.

, as the region was controlled by the German Empire at the time of the law's passage. The creation of modern education systems, instrumental in the construction of nation-states, also passed by the elaboration of a common, national history. History textbooks are one of the many ways through which this common history was transmitted. ''Le Tour de France par deux enfants'', for example, was the Third Republic (French Third Republic)'s classic textbook for elementary school: it described
On 18 March 2005, it was announced that five elders from his home island of Lakeba had visited him in Suva to invite him to succeed his late father as Tui Nayau, or Paramount Chief of the Lau Islands. Although not strictly hereditary, the title is traditionally held by a male in the chiefly Vuanirewa Clan (Vuanirewa Clan of Fiji), a tradition his father reportedly wanted upheld. One village elder, who chose not to be named, said that Mara had both the blood ties and the modern
education expected of a Paramount Chief. ''"He is a high chief, whose parents are both paramount chiefs and have strong blood ties with all the chiefly households in Fiji and Tonga, is young and can look after his people,"'' the elder said. ::"Middle East", ABC News, ABC TV (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) ::"Shoot-out in Suva (Suva)", National Nine News, Nine Network WikiPedia:Suva Commons:Category:Suva

, and the Ethiopian Women's Charitable Organization. She was also patroness of the Jerusalem Society that arranged for pilgrimages to the Holy Land. She founded the Empress Menen School for Girls in Addis Ababa, the first all girls school which had both boarding and day students. Girls from all over the Empire were brought to the school to receive a modern education, encouraged by the Empress who visited it often and presided over its graduation ceremonies. The Empress gave generously, as well as sponsored programs for the poor, ill and disabled. She was also a devoutly religious woman who did much to support the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. She built, renovated and endowed numerous churches in Ethiopia and in the Holy Land. Prominent among these are the St. Raguel Church in Addis Ababa's Merkato district, the Kidane Mehret (Our Lady Covenant of Mercy) Church on Mount Entoto, and the Holy Trinity Monastery on the banks of the River Jordan in the Holy Land. She gave generously from her personal funds towards the building of the new Cathedral of St. Mary of Zion at Axum, but did not live to see it completed and dedicated. The Empress and some of her family were placed under house arrest briefly during the 1960 Imperial Guard coup attempt against her husband at her villa outside the Guenete Leul Palace grounds in northern Addis Ababa. Following the return of the Emperor and the crushing of the coup attempt, there was much speculation as to the conduct of the Crown Prince, who had been proclaimed monarch by the coup leaders. It was noted that the Crown Prince had accompanied his mother in a drive through the palace grounds, making stops at Imperial Guard posts to exchange pleasantries with the guards, on the night before the coup was launched. The ailing Empress had been urged to visit the posts by security officials, who were concerned about the soldiers' morale, and perhaps had an idea that something was brewing. The appearance of the Empress with the Crown Prince at her side may have been used by coup leaders as an indication to their followers that the Empress might sympathise with a movement that brought her favored son to the throne. It is extremely unlikely that either the Empress or the Prince had any idea of what was being plotted. However, a cloud of suspicion never left the Crown Prince, and the Empress was deeply saddened by this. DATE OF DEATH 15 February 1962 PLACE OF DEATH Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Villa near Guenete Leul Palace In 1961, he settled in Niger, serving as an adviser for the country's Foreign Ministry (Foreign relations of Niger) (extending a two-year contract until 1984), and was a Professor of International law and Economic history at the University of Niamey (Abdou Moumouni University of Niamey).

It is the gateway to the revolution of European education. Sir William Jones (philologist) established the Asiatic Society in 1794 for promoting oriental studies. People like Ram Mohan Roy, David Hare (David Hare (philanthropist)), Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar and William Carey (William Carey (missionary)) played a leading role in the setting up of modern schools and colleges in the city. The Fort William College was established in 1810. The Hindu College was established in 1817. In 1855 the Hindu College was renamed as the Presidency College (Presidency College, Kolkata).
