Al-tarbiyyah wa'l-ta'lim fi'am 1970 (Education in 1970).
Hafez Ghanem, Mo'hammad
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a description of the UAR Ministry of Education's efforts during 1970 to implement national education policy. All children of compulsory age were admitted to elementary school. This required the construction of new facilities in rural areas to combat absenteeism and dropouts. There was also an increase in the construction of secondary schools. Technical education was expanded both in absolute figures and in ratio to other education. Also 10,185 additional teachers were appointed. Modern mathematics were introduced to many schools by way of newly trained teachers and new textbooks. A new plan was developed by the Ministry to conform to modern educational thinking. Special emphasis was placed on technical education. Many meetings and seminars were held to discuss future schools in the modern state. The four problems of concentration for the Ministry of education are: (1) new buildings and smaller classes; (2) new school equipment; (3) teacher recruitment and training; (4) preparation of curricula to meet national technical needs.
