This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) surveying Egyptian education. Elementary education is compulsory. It begins between the ages of six and eight and lasts six years. The curriculum includes Arabic, religion, social subjects, hygiene, arithmetic, community singing, music, physical education, drawing and handicrafts. In preparatory education, the trend is towards unification, the aim being to encourage the student's development and discover his abilities and guide him accordingly. Secondary education includes agricultural, industrial, commercial, academic, and teacher training for members of both sexes. Technical secondary schools may be attended by students who have completed their preparatory education, subject to age and aptitude restrictions. Commercial education is designed to produce a generation capable of working for a higher standard of living and to train workers for various national development projects. Measures by the Government to encourage commercial education include broadening the curriculum to include public accounting, co-ops, port management, labor legislation, social security, and economic development.
