The Historic Roots of Cairo University 1
Educational system was the talk of the most important developments in Egypt in the first half of the nineteenth century and was closely linked to the project's political renaissance, which laid the foundations of Muhammad Ali Pasha (1805 - 1848) and before the inauguration of the Muhammad Ali Pasha of Egypt did not know Egypt's educational system in the strict sense, which indicates by this term there was not only Al-Azhar and some of the schools attached to mosques and Koranic schools in cities and villages, but all were not of a system to them to make them educational unit as it was far from the State authority and control, although it could do to educate the people of the country's centuries-long

And derived educational system modern disciples of Koranic schools and Azhar at the beginning was there to Jean roam the country to visit Koranic schools and choose the Iraqi resistance elements of its students to attend school modern was selected as outstanding students from Al-Azhar to join the high-school when it was built it was out of luck some of them to join the mission sent by Muhammad Ali of the study in France

However, this organization did not last long In the 1841 settlement was the Egyptian Ottoman set limits to a political project, which teased the dreams of Muhammad Ali and put an end to the size of the army and tie the hands of the state in managing the economy, becoming a state in but need more staff, but the Ptsrbh large number of soldiers and officers and then Muhammad saw to reconsider in the education system in line with the new conditions, hence the new organization which was established in 1841 and which was the cancellation of most primary schools and lose the preparation of students private schools ((high)) in line with the State's need to alumni, and besides been reduced salaries of students and the organization ((Court school)) in a new way

This explains the link between modern education and the State's need to staff what happened to education during the era of Abbas I of Egypt (1848 - 1854) and Mohamed Said Pasha (1854 - 1863)

In Ghd Khedive Ismail (1863 - 1879) completed the manifestations of dependency to open the door to borrow from financial institutions, the European wide it looked Ismail to complete the infrastructure for the Egyptian economy, which began his grandfather Muhammad Ali through the expansion of irrigation projects, construction of railways and roads and the port of Alexandria and the cities of the new channel Suez (Port Said and Ismailia), and urbanization in Cairo and Alexandria by the desire to increase the power of Egypt's military for the expansion of the Egyptian presence in Sudan will demand that the whole lot of money Astdanha Ismail from the financial houses European and whatever it was it was a plan Ismail credit completed the process of integration of the Egyptian economy in the European economy decisively capacity Specialized production of the Egyptian Agricultural

However, the completion of infrastructure projects for the Egyptian economy and the goal of establishing an Egyptian military force to make the State during the reign of Khedive Ismail needed to prepare the administrative and technical cadres and military, which required the modern revival of the educational system, which eroded at the hands of Abbas I, Muhammad Said Pasha

During the reign of Ismail, education has a great deal of attention and government has set up schools and assumed the costs of study, including living expenses of students was re-((Court school)), annulled Said by the increased education budget and gradually returned the government to dispatch missions to Europe, walks, mostly to France and set up a number of primary schools across the country from Alexandria in the north to al-Minya south and was supervised by the government to Koranic schools (offices eligibility) was established as some schools processing (intermediate) and schools Al_khassusip (high) communities established ((School of Administration and tongues)) 1868 (which became known as the School rights since 1886) and School of Irrigation and Architecture (known as Alengkhanp) in 1866 and School House of Science (1872), which had to prepare teachers for primary schools and Alttaghirip School Area and Accounting (1868) and the School of Agriculture (1867) and the School of the tongue of ancient Egyptian (antiquities and Egyptian) in 1869 Add to that the specialized military schools

In conformity with the maintenance base for high schools where there is a demand Krejeha and indispensable whenever rarely demand they shut down the School of Agriculture in 1875 were canceled school tongue of ancient Egyptian in 1876 Bama went some specialists antiquities who was destined to one of them to be leaders in this field in Egypt (Ahmed Kamal Pasha), while School of Medicine received a great deal of attention

And when he took the Egyptian scholar Ali Pasha Mubarak Diwan schools in 1868 collected a number of private schools (high) Sarayat trail Gamamez allotting a reasonable each school area of the palace and established a laboratory equipped for chemistry, nature, public libraries (Library Kdioip) in 1870 and included a large received by the public lectures in various branches of knowledge were virtually so there was an opportunity for a university in Egypt, which saw a kind of spatial presence scientific communication between the professors and each other and between them and the students as if this experiment to continue for the nucleus for the establishment of the first university in Egypt

And continued education policy based on the link between the State's need to staff and the expansion of schools throughout the British colonial period (1882 - 1922) Fowlie English attention to Blackburn without the effort to develop them while they tied acceptance of elementary education is the need for secondary education and higher education Visa elementary education sufficiently need secondary schools and privacy (high) of the students while working to promote this education and raising their level and the need for those schools to pupils but rather to require the state to administrative staff, technical and limited admission to schools on children who can who can pay expenses is education for the private, public, and then became secondary and higher education - on in particular - limited to specific social class as opposed to personal efficiency and readiness are the criterion for selecting students in the schools before the era of British occupation, where he was a free house education in all schools in the era of Muhammad Ali and Ismail

If higher education has become a minor on its own must be cast dye English to link these social strata Culture British and therefore decided in 1898 to make education in the School of Medicine in English were canceled from the French department school teachers in 1900 and was established in Section eng Law School in 1899 studying the material in English is growing gradually at the expense of the French Department at the school and headed missions to Britain, after traveling to France, so became the Arabization of education as a fundamental demands of the national movement and the call for Arabization some success seemed since 1907 Arabization of education in the School of Arts and Trades and the School of Agriculture and appeared Arabization School of Law in 1910 and began teaching the trade by the Arabs and delayed Arabization of education in my school teachers until after the 1919 revolution, and failed to call for Arabization in schools Alengkhanp, medicine, pharmacy and veterinary medicine
