Abstract

Abstract: The study aimed to identify the reality of human development at the educational institutions in the Sultanate of Oman from the Principals' perspective. To achieve the objectives of the study, the descriptive approach was used through a questionnaire as a main tool, which included 25 paragraphs related to the human development. The validity of the questionnaire was verified by the sincerity of the arbitrators; and its stability was verified by using the Alpha-Cronbach stability factor (88%). Data were collected from a random sample of 200 principals in Dhofar schools. The data were analyzed statistically using the (SPSS) program; depending on mean, standard deviation, relative weight, t test, and variance analysis test. The study found that educational institutions in Oman moderately contribute to achieve human development requirements in general. It also recommended increasing the budget allocated to scientific research in schools and activating positive partnerships between schools and production institutions and the economy in society.

Keywords: Reality, Human Development, Educational Institutions, Sultanate of Oman, School Principals.
