Plan to rehabilitate 100 schools in 2018, says Minister

Damascus, SANA – Budget and Accounts Committee at the People’s Assembly discussed on Tuesday the investment budget of Education Ministry and its affiliated establishments for 2018, which was set at SYP 33.957 billion.

In his answers to the Committee members’ inquires, Education Minister Hazwan al-Waz said that the ministry is about to open more schools after the army has liberated many areas.

Al-Waz noted that the challenges facing the educational sector are huge and work is underway to set up an integrated educational system that started with the development of curricula and the qualification of teachers, where 40 thousand teachers were trained during 2016.

He pointed out that there are about 800 schools that have been damaged and suspended from work, noting that the next year’s plan aims at restoring 100 schools.
