CAIRO: Maysa Fadel, head of public education sector, said Friday that the top priorities of the Ministry of Education are to start the second semester on Saturday March 8, maintain security in schools and to assay students’ health conditions.
The ministry has signed protocols with the security administrations in the governorates to regulate patrols for securing schools, Fadel told Al-Hayah Al-Youm TV talk show, pointing out that the schools’ internal securities will investigate the identification cards of the parents of students, when they go to bring their children, to ensure security.
For the health care, the ministry has stamped general instructions on school walls on swine flu and bird flu symptoms, and has prepared rooms for isolating the infected students, Fadel added.
Fadel said the ministry has assigned a numbers of curriculum designers to ease the current curriculums to overcome the postponement of the second semester.
