Community Schools in Egypt

Show Summary Details


The global and national education context for initializing a community school is discussed here to aid with the understanding of the concept of the community school and Egypt's history in terms of its initiative in the development of the community school. This includes mobilization, mounted initiatives, phrase and strategies, training pedagogies, and core inputs and processes. Also, a description of the fundamental principles guiding the community-school initiative is given. As part of a world movement and a manifestation of special concern in education, Egypt faced one critical challenge in 1993, which was to get all children into school. Such a historical analysis helps to establish the motivation and the investment needed to reach the community-school goal of Egypt talked about in this chapter.
