Will the Egyptian Ministry of Education Issue a Bill to Criminalize Private Tuition?

The Egyptian Ministry of Education has been working on submitting a bill to the Madbouly Cabinet, and it’s not to increase the number of schools in Egypt or to reduce schooling fees. But the bill will address something they thought was much more important!

The bill will aim to criminalize the act of establishing unsanctioned tutoring centers all around Egypt, setting hefty fines and in some cases, prison sentences.

In addition; Deputy Minister Mohamed Omar told Al Hayah Al Youm Talk show that the bill will also require teachers to obtain a license that will allow them to work as private tutors or they will also face punishments that might include jail time and dismissal.
