Minister of Education and Technical Education, Dr. Tariq Shawky, responded to the controversy surrounding the new high school system, after the Senate rejected the new high school law.
Shawky said, in a phone call to the story program via MBC Egypt, that the distinguished Senate has an advisory role, regarding a law for high school, stressing that in fact there is no so-called high school law, there is only a law for education and not for high school in particular.
The minister explained that the secondary school system is not new, as some claim, as it has been in place for 3 years and is tried annually through the examinations conducted by the ministry.
Shawky indicated that there is no truth to what is being reported regarding the abolition of the electronic system, or the improvement system that will enable students to improve their group, appealing to students and parents to only listen to what the ministry announces through its official outlets, indicating that the electronic experimental exams are continuing, and two experimental exams will be held before the launch Official exams in next July.
