The State of Education in Egypt

The Egyptian government has recently shown increased interest in improving its education system, especially for women and girls. As a result, the government has provided funding to increase access to education in Egypt. In the 2016/17 fiscal year, 11.1 percent of government spending went to education. By the 2018/19 fiscal year, this figure is expected to increase to 19 percent. This is a huge jump from the 3.4 percent that was spent in 2012-13.

The government has also sought to reduce its fiscal deficit by turning to private companies for funds to support education. In recent years, tertiary education has received private funding. In August 2018, the Egyptian government issued Law No. 62 of 2018, which enables foreign universities to open an international branch campus in Egypt. Unlike in previous years, it no longer requires foreign universities to sign a treaty with their home country to open an educational institution in Egypt.

The government provides funding to public universities, but spending constraints have encouraged authorities to turn to the private sector to fund these institutions. In the New Administrative Capital, eight new IBCs have been established. The government's efforts are paying off. A recent report noted that the private sector is investing $70 million a year in education in Egypt. And the growth of Egypt's economy is a great example of a country's investment in education.

The educational system in Egypt has suffered many problems in the 1990s. The government failed to enforce the laws requiring primary-school-age children to attend school. As a result, almost half of the formally enrolled children did not attend class on a regular basis. The rates also varied greatly between urban and rural regions. Furthermore, only half of primary school students completed all six grades. Despite the improvements in the education system, problems still remain.

The educational system in Egypt has been shaped by a variety of factors. During the 1990s, the government did not enforce the laws that require primary-school-age children to attend school. As a result, 50 percent of the formally enrolled children did not attend class regularly. In addition, the primary-school enrollment rate varied dramatically by region. Compared to the rural areas, urban areas had high enrollment rates. Only half of the pupils in the primary school completed all six grades.

While the literacy rate in Egypt is relatively high, it is still not a good indicator for the quality of education. In 2010, only about 72 percent of Egyptians were literate, a far cry from the 63.5% rate in 2000. Moreover, the gender gap between men and women in education is still quite wide, with women outperforming their male counterparts. In contrast, men in the country had a much higher literacy rate than the females.

While the number of students in Egypt's public schools is relatively low, the quality of education is lacking. Teachers are not encouraged to engage in debate, and often use corporal punishment. As a result, most Egyptian students do not meet international benchmarks. In fact, more than half of the country's grade-four and grade-eight students did not meet the standards of the international community in the past. While the government has worked hard to improve education, it still needs to make major changes to improve quality.

The quality of education in Egypt has varied widely. In general, the Egyptian population is highly educated. It is estimated that about 30% of adults in their relevant age group attend university. This is impressive for a country with such a large number of people. The quality of education in Egypt is improving rapidly. However, the country's education system is not yet perfect. There are many factors that can affect the quality of education in Egypt. The number of professors is low, as is the overall level of literacy.

The quality of education in Egypt is inconsistent. It can vary by region and school type. In the past, there were only a few private schools. The government has since implemented the National Curriculum in English to improve the quality of education in Egypt. But these schools are still inefficient. Some students were not able to complete their primary school. Even the ones who did not finish elementary school were unable to complete their studies. Fortunately, there are now public schools in the country.
