Show Summary Details


The process of international socialization of basic reforms policy and the key of development agencies are habitualized and internalized within Egyptian educational institutions and makes them part of daily operational procedures. International organizations have aspired to socialize several numbers of norms on the international level; universal basic education has topped the agendas and attracted the resources of most international organizations and donor agencies. Basic education is a policy issue of significant importance for domestic politics in Egypt and it reflects the political and ideological disposition of the regime. Education is often proclaimed by the state to be an issue of national security on both external and domestic levels. Countries that possess higher education will somehow dominate others in terms of technology; that is why basic education must be implemented in every country to promote growth in development.
