Legitimacy is a major issue in Arab politics, and as a major socialization factor, education can legitimate those in power. In Iran, Syria and Iraq education has been carefully controlled and manipulated in order to produce desired political socialization ends. Lebanon is a sharp contrast since, because of the confessional system, the central government has done little to control education. Lack of uniformity and inequities of educational opportunities have contributed to Lebanon's civil strife.
