The Muslim Ummah has a very colourful history of development, which was mainly rooted in the excellence of their education system. Sadly, in the colonial era, the Muslim educational system faced eclipse for several reasons.
It is noteworthy that Africa has been suffering from foreign occupation for a longer time among all continents. With time and due to independence movements, many African countries got political
independence. However, a sound educational system is imperative for enjoying complete autonomy.
Without tracing the roots of the previous system and analysing its various dimensions, achieving the objective of developing a sound educational system is hardly possible. And for that analysis, original, authentic, and reliable sources are a must. The book in hand: A Brief History of Education in The Gambia is one such document produced by Dr Cherno Omar Barry. He is a researcher, philosopher, and a reputed educationist in The Gambia.
