THE ISSAM FARES INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC POLICY AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
In collaboration with Global Engagement Initiative at AUB, this event was organized on Wednesday June 23, 2021 in order to give an overview of the problems in the education sector in the Arab world and their causes.
Four of the Arab region’s most respected scholar-practitioners in the field of education pointed out the constraints in the education system at primary and secondary levels as well as the weaknesses of Arab higher education and the low knowledge production from universities.
Taking into consideration the ultimate consequences of poor education systems and their impacts on young individuals and on society, the discussion offered possible roads to university and pre-university reform and teacher excellence.
