I am a college professor and a world citizen. I am also the Founder and Director of the Center for Acquisition of Language, Literacy And Culture (CALLAC). I love all people, and strongly believe that all people are the same, regardless gender, race, color, religion, ethnicity, history, geography, culture, language, intellect, background or wealth. I am against inequality in all forms and shapes, firmly a pro women issues, fight against violence and harassment to women, everywhere, at home, at work, and on the streets. I want to see all peoples of this world become one. Perhaps through communicating with each other we can achieve this.

Today I met a lovely Egyptian girl, Minna. She is 12 years old and is finishing her primary school. The education system in Egypt is divided into 3 stages: the primary for 6 years, the preparatory for 3 years, and the secondary for 3 years. At the end of each stage there is a state run test. The test determines whether the student can pass to the subsequent stage or not.

My encounter with Minna was to help her with English. The blog below is written in Arabic (MaSri- Egyptian Arabic). I apologize to non-native speakers of Arabic that I do not provide a translation to the dialogue. But I thought that since the blog is related to education in Egypt, I thought it would be more relevant to write in Arabic so that it can reach as many people as people.

The blog does not only include the conversation that took place between Minna and me. It ends with factors that guarantee success in education in general. The issues Minna raised and talked about made me more emphatic about these factors. These factors are:

1- Leadership

2- Funding

3- High expectations, for the school, teachers, and students

4- Place and safety

5- Teacher professional development and training.
