CAIRO, Aug 6 (MENA) - The World Bank published an infographic Tuesday on a project to support Egypt's education reform.
The infographic, shown on the World Bank's official Twitter account, tackled the efforts exerted to improve teaching and learning conditions in public schools by supporting integral aspects of the national Education Reform Program.
It shows that the project aims to expand success to quality kindergarten and increase enrollment, focusing on poor districts.
The project works on establishing frameworks for continuous professional development for teachers, education leaders and supervisors that are gender sensitive and in tune with climate adaptation principles, it said.
The infographic added that the project improves education delivery through the availability and use of digital learning content.
The project also develops "fair, valid and reliable computer-based assessment and examination systems incorporating a new grade 4 national assessment, a grade 9 national examination and a reformed secondary education graduation system," it noted.
The infographic said the expected results of the project include the enrollment of 500,000 new students in Kindergarten (KG) 1-2, 50 percent of whom are from the poorest districts.
It added that 50 percent of education quality improvement in kindergarten schools is set to be achieved, according to the new quality assurance system.
Two million teachers, education leaders and supervisors will be trained under the new continuous professional behavior framework, it said.
About 35 percent of teachers will demonstrate improved practices, the infographic shows, adding that 40 percent of improvements are to be among female teachers.
The expected results show that two million students will experience the new grade 4 and grade 9 assessments and the reformed secondary school graduation and examination system.
"First cohort of secondary stage students will graduate in summer 2021 under the new cumulative score-based assessment and certification system," it said.
