Education Minister Trek Shawki
CAIRO- 2 January 2022- Egypt targets increasing the number of Egyptian-Japanese schools from 48 to at least 100 schools in the coming period, said Minister of Education Tarek Shawki in remarks to “On My Responsibility” talk show on Sada Al-Balad T.V. on Saturday.
The Minister added that over the past period, 37,000 schools have been renovated and developed nationwide, saying that the ministry plans to build new schools.
The existing Egyptian-Japanese Schools are currently dispersed among 25 governorates (out of 27), including one that has been recently accomplished in North Sinai's Arish city.
The curricula delivered at those schools are Egyptian. Yet, the holistic system is the Japanese one dubbed Tokkatsu, which is a kind of student activity that builds the students’ character to be independent and positive.
