Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli on Tuesday ordered the acceleration of finalizing 25 new facilities of the Nile Egyptian Schools (NES) nationwide upon directives from President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The premier’s remarks were made in a meeting held on Tuesday to follow up on the successful experiment of NES system. Minister of Education Tareq Shawqi, Minister of Housing Essam El Gazzar and Deputy Chairman of the New Urban Communities Authority Abdel Moteleb Mamdouh attended the meeting.
During the meeting, Madbouli asserted the importance of such new system of schools and the increase of demand for applying for them after the success of its systems of the past few years.
He noted that the Ministry of Housing is currently about to finalize nine schools and 14 others will be launched soon.
Cabinet Spokesman Nader Saad said the meeting covered the progress achieved after a presidential directive was issued to establish 25 new schools in Sadat City, New Cairo, New Tiba, New Assiut, New Aswan, El Shorouk and Sheikh Zayed.
Egypt’s national Education Development Fund has created this new school system with the aim of providing excellence in teaching and learning. With curricula and assessment linked to international standards, the Nile Egyptian Schools were launched in 2017/2018 and there is a high turnout on admission to such schools system.
