Iraq Needs 5,800 New Schools

The Education Ministry said on Wednesday that Iraq needs 5,800 schools if it is to overcome the crisis of lack of school buildings.

Walid Hasan, the spokesman of the ministry, told AKnews that the Education Minister Mohammad Tamim promised to build 200 schools this year, based on the money allocated for the Ministry, pointing out that the schools will be built in the districts, counties and remote areas that are in dire need of school buildings.

As a result of the shortage of school buildings, the Ministry of Education adopted double shifts in many schools, especially those in the rural areas away from urban centers.

Non-governmental organizations interested in the educational situation warned of the impact of the absence of appropriate teaching places on the scientific level of the students, especially in the districts and areas that lack basic facilities.
