In this book Dr. Adan Saman focuses on the broad theme of ´´Integrated Islamic Schools´´ that are distinct from Madrasa, Qur´anic schools, private secular schools and government-regulated public schools. The book presents comparative research on such integrated schools in Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria and Tanzania, with particular reference to Kenya. As a curriculum developer this author explains the special role of ´´Integrated Islamic Schools´´, especially in those pluralistic nations where Muslim parents would like their children to benefit from both Islamic Education and the public education curriculum. The word ´´integrated´´ refers to a school that blends the core of Islamic education with the government-regulated school content. The Integrated Islamic School is becoming normative for many parents intending to have their children immersed in both Islamic values and those entrenched in the public education system. Pupils who attend these schools are expected to excel in both tracks- to pass public examinations while excelling in the Islamic way of life. In a pluralistic nation such as Kenya, this integrated model of schooling seems appropriate.

The research indicated that this problem, left unaddressed, could undermine the development of men, their families, and communities. The purpose of this qualitative case study was to provide insight into the dispositional, institutional, and situational factors deterring young men who acquired the requisite number of certificates for entry to HE but did not enroll. The theoretical frameworks used to ground this study were Cross´s chain of response theory, Bourdieu´s social capital theory, and Knowles´ theory of andragogy. The research questions addressed the contributing factors to the disinclination of men from enrolling in higher education, suggestions for increasing enrollment in higher education from the perspectives of young men and educational leaders, and benefits of nonenrollment in higher education in Barbados. A purposeful sample of 7 men from the 2014 academic year cohort of 3 secondary schools participated in semistructured interviews.
