Egypt’s Curriculum Courses
Most of the people around us do not have any idea that one of the largest education systems in the entire Middle East North Africa where the individual government of these countries offers free education at all levels. We can even notice that most of the school’s star to take small children from the age of four which therefore continues with two years of kinder garden. But this is not that mandatory.
And if there is a question that comes to your mind that when to start your proper schooling then officially we can say every child start their school from the age of six. From here or we may say from the age of six, they will experience six years of primary school which is followed by three years of what is known as the preparatory school. Then after all these six years comes the third where a standardized examination is administered. Here the students complete their nine years of education. Here he or she would enter any one of the three tracks in secondary schools. Moreover, the government is responsible for providing free education at all these respective levels.
The theme of the course
Even in Egypt, the Ministry of Education is also tackling some issues like trying to upgrade from a centralized system to offering autonomy to individual institutions, thereby increasing accountability. With the emerging new technologies, we noticed that the World Bank and other multilateral organizations Egypt aims to improve access in early childhood to care and education and the inclusion of IT and also Communication Technology at all levels of education, especially at the tertiary levels. According to a present rough calculation, the current overall expenditure on education in Egypt is about 12.6 percent as of 2007.
● Providing teacher assistance
In Egypt, there is a little number of teachers who have completed their college education. Most of the majority of people have only completed the mandatory nine years of education. That is one of the main reasons; the Egyptian people are providing extra course materials that align with the Egyptian curriculum, which will further help the teachers to teach their students. There are various online courses for all students of all grades, meaning that no matter what level is being taught, the teacher has access to supplementary materials. Examinations also took place or are held at all levels except in grade 6 and nine at the primary education level and grade 12 in the second stage which therefore applies standardized regional and national exams.
The Ministry of Education is somewhat responsible for making decisions about the education system with the support of the three centers, i.e., the National Center of Curricula Development along with the National Center for Education Research, and also the National Center for Examination and Educational Evacuations. And each one of these centers has its formulating education policies with other respective state-level committees.
For primary and secondary education levels, there is also a formal teacher’s qualification track. All these teachers are required to complete four years of pre-service courses at university to enter into the profession of teaching service.
When we will see the old records, we will come to know that since 2010, the literacy rate in Egypt is 72 percent, being 80.3% for males and 63.5% for females. Even we see that the government of Egypt is also giving some special attention as well as the NGO’s too just only to reduce the gender disparity in education and to achieve the highest prize at universal primary education. Keeping all this in mind, the educational system of Egypt is highly centralized and is therefore divided into three stages.
More about the course
They are as follows:-
1. Basic Education
● Primary Education
● Preparatory Education
2. Secondary Education
3. Post Secondary Education
According to the free compulsory education law passed in 1981 which includes the Preparatory stage, both Primary and Preparatory stages are being combined under the label Basic Education. And if one wishes to study further, then it is dependable over the student’s ability.
Though Egypt has an extensive education system that outstrips all others present in the Middle East and North Africa only 30 percent of all Egyptians in the relevant age group go to university or in school for their education. However, only half of them graduates and complete their degree. As per the older records, we can see that around $9.5bn was spent on education which further equates to about $300 per student each year. But with the price rise of all things around the globe, every the amount is increasing slightly for per student. Most of the national education budget comes from the state and local governments.

Education of Egypt is again subdivided into many sub-divisions. As we know, Education crisis in Egypt is very complicated, public education is not capable of providing quality education and is facing many difficulties in providing any education with the shortage of facilities, lack of trained educators and distension in classes.

During this introductory stage, pupils or we may say students should enroll at state, religious or private schools by choice.
