Bildung lässt sich am besten verstehen, wenn sie einer historiographischen Betrachtung obliegt. Diese Studie soll zeigen, dass die Politik der aufeinanderfolgenden Regierungsformen, die seit dem 19. Jahrhundert existierten und die politischen Ereignisse, welche Jordanien seit Gründung des Emirats Ostjordanien durchliefen, die Entwicklung des Bildungssystems maßgeblich beeinflusst haben. Jene trugen zu einem Umbruch des jordanischen Selbstverständnisses sowie der gesellschaftlichen Sichtweise bei, bei der die Mehrheit der Jordanier nach akademischer Hochschulbildung strebt. Diese wird als einziger Pfad zu sozialem und wirtschaftlichem Fortschritt verstanden. Die gewonnene soziale Einstellung, die historischen Ereignisse und der aus der enormen Nachfrage resultierende Druck, gehören zu den Hauptursachen für die erhöhte Anzahl von Hochschulgründungen im öffentlichen Sektor. Diese Masse an Ereignissen und gesellschaftlichen Neuerungen veranlasste die jordanische Regierung, die Privatisierung des Hochschulwesens voranzutreiben. Diese Studie liefert eine Untersuchung der Dimensionen der Ausweitung jener jordanischer Privathochschulen aus historischer Perspektive.
