Report on the Administrative Aspects of Educational Development in U.A.R.
El-Gohary, Z. M.; Hussein, M. I.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a study of the development of education in the UAR since 1959. Education in the UAR is a major enterprise, and compared with other public activities, it employs far more people, spends far more money, and affects far more people both directly and indirectly. In the beginning, there were difficulties in the application of the new educational policy. Local authorities participated in the educational process, and a decentralized system in administration was applied to ensure local government. Education reached rural and remote areas. Private education decreased as public education increased. The Ministry of Higher Education was founded to deal with universities. The Ministry of Education has applied the principle of centralization of planning and decentralization of execution. There are benefits in both centralization and decentralization. The Ministry of Education is responsible for elementary education teacher training, preparatory and secondary education, technical education, central services, foreign relations, finances, and administrative affairs. The reorganization of the Ministry was an improvement over the previous practices. (Author/GDB)
