Abstract:This paper provides an overview of the research articles on education presented during the 11th up to 16th meetings of ICES (International Conference of Ethiopian Studies). It examines the trend of Ethiopicist scholars' participation in education over time; scholars' nationality; the approaches employed in their research; the levels of education dealt with; the issues addressed; and the extent to which they meet the requirements of scholarly work. The most important conclusions are: while both foreigners and Ethiopian nationals have reflections on education, Ethiopians from within the country and abroad have taken the lead; most of the papers employ a qualitative approach; most papers focus on primary education; the major themes covered by the papers include adult, literacy and nonformal education; educational efficiency; equity of educational opportunities; language policy and languages of instruction.
