Decree of the President of the UAR Concerning Act No. 16 on the Subject of Private Education; with Explanatory Note.
United Arab Republic.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) describing a UAR presidential decree defining the establishment and regulation of private schools in the UAR. Private schools are defined as any non governmental establishment principally or secondarily engaged in education, vocational training, or any other aspect of general or technical education below the university level. The curricula must be in accordance with the policies of the Ministry of Education. The proprietor of the private school must be a UAR citizen, or a citizen of another Arab state with the approval of the Minister, and must be capable of discharging the financial obligations of the school. The Act provides that every private school shall have an advisory committee for its administration and a board of management, and every secondary school must have a students' union. Local councils may grant private schools financial assistance. The Ministry may authorize certain special courses, and has the responsibility for maintaining proper standards in Arabic, Arab history, geography, and religion, Arab civics and responsibilities in society. Ownership and financial obligations are discussed in some detail. (Author/GDB)
