Our agency, Hawar news (ANHA) has met with Kawthar Dokko who pointed out that the Body, during its last meeting with similar committees in Autonomous and Civil Administrations, set a date for the beginning of the exams of the second semester to be at the beginning of May of this year, and set the 15th of the same month as the end of the academic year 2018/2019.
Dokko described the educational process of this year as "good" comparing to the previous years, through qualified cadres who received training courses on the curriculum before the beginning of the current academic year, which earned them more experience because they have been out of education for a long time during the control of mercenaries on their cities and villages and depriving them of teaching.
"We have encountered two main problems during the current year: the delay in handing over the curriculum in some departments such as al-Raqqa, al-Tabqa and Deir ez-Zor, and the lack of furniture and teaching means in some schools, which we were forced to teach in after being repaired urgently to ensure that our children of the areas adjacent to these schools would not be deprived of education."
She added that the Body will work to avoid these problems next year as it is currently discussing with the administration and putting plans and studies to restore all destroyed schools, which exceeded 160 schools out of service.
The co-chair of the Education Body, Kawthar Dokko, promised to rehabilitate the destroyed schools in the newly liberated areas in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor, al-Soussa and Hajin, and to ensure qualified staff to receive students in these areas at the beginning of next year.
The number of students in the north and east of Syria, according to the statistics available to Education Body in Autonomous Administration reached about 800 thousand students, distributed in 5,078 schools supervised by a teaching staff of 42,852 teachers.
