ArabFinance: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el Sisi opened on September 16th the Egyptian-Japanese University for Science and Technology in Alexandria’s Borg el Arab, as well as other private universities.

He stressed in a televised statement that the newly introduced electronic testing system for Thanaweya Amma aims at reducing human error in correcting exams.

The president added that the school attendance model will be applied as a preventative measure against COVID-19.

The country has around 30,000 schools with 500,000 classrooms, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly noted.

He added that 73,000 further classrooms, estimated at a cost of EGP 40 billion, need to be developed to reach an optimum ratio of students per class.

Earlier, the education, manpower, and planning ministries finalized a draft law that would establish a government authority to accredit institutions offering technical learning and training programs.
