Abstract: The aim of the first section of this paper is to show how a Koranic School presence has remained constant in spite of the sudden emergence of Western style schooling introduced by colonization. The second section of the paper revisits the problem of terminology in the study of the Koranic school. In the third section, using the perspective of situated learning, we will try to analyze the pedagogical system of Koranic Schools by describing the social and cognitive processes employed by this institution. In the final part, we hope to show how the current educational situation in several Islamic contexts could be better served through closer interactions between Koranic and Western schools. Research conducted in Africa was primarily undertaken for this text.
