Cairo- The National Dialogue discussed on Thursday ways to upgrade the pre-university educational system, the country’s population and how to improve demographic traits.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli submitted to the Board of Trustees of National Dialogue a draft law on the establishment of a national non-government council for education and training, for discussion during the upcoming sessions.
The step comes as part of the presidential directives to put the bill forward for discussion at the dialogue’s relevant sessions before submitting to the House of Representatives.
During the dialogue’s societal track discussions on Thursday, participants shared their views on pre-university education issues, the country’s population, and how to improve demographic characteristics.
Participants called for reforming the educational system through a restructuring process that starts with the teachers, who receive inadequate salaries. They also discussed the development of school curricula.
During previous sessions on the societal, political, and economic tracks, the dialogue tackled parliamentary and political life in Egypt, how to eliminate discrimination to achieve social justice, the importance of drawing up a tourism map for Egypt, guardianship over minors’ money and property, a law on local popular councils, and sustainable development and challenges facing co-operatives, among others.
