CAIRO: Three international schools in Cairo have been subjected to the financial and administrative supervision of the Education Ministry due to violations, according to a Thursday statement by the ministry.
The schools, Talaee el-Mostakbal, Nile Abou el-Numrus and Hebat al-Ahram, have violated ministerial statutes regulating the work on international schools, according to the statement.
After the police opened an investigation recently into Futures International School in Cairo over alleged sexual assaults of children, the ministry began a crackdown on international schools to make sure they abide by the law.
A total of 27 international schools in Egypt have been warned by the Education Ministry against charging extra fees, violating their own internal statutes, accepting extra students and not applying for work permits for foreign staff.
The Education Ministry has already closed three international schools, the German School in Luxor, the Leaders School in Kerdasa and the Heliopolis School in Alexandria, for operating without a permit.
Six international schools have been put under the administrative and financial supervision of the ministry: the Choueifat International School in New Cairo, the American School in Cairo, Nesour School in Kerdasa, Trust and Ibn Sina Schools in Giza, and el-Massria Integrated School in 10 Ramadan City.
