Abstract:In Tanzania the distribution of population might be expected to be the dominant influence in regard to the provision of primary schools, since the majority of the pupils live at home. However, marked anomalies have occurred. The anomalies in the siting of educational institutions in Tanganyika can most frequently be attributed to certain dominant factors: Arab influence deterring missionary enterprise on the coast - The attraction of Arab glave routes for mission sites - The attitude of Individual chiefs to missionary enterprise - The influence of mission society policies - The necessity of utilising available property and buildings after 1918 - The influence of government educational policies - Conclusion.
