Community schools started in 1992 in partnership with UNICEF and the Ministry of Education. It targeted hamlets in upper Egypt and specifically the female population. It has currently reached over 44,00 children 75% of which are girls. The cost of this seems to be less than running a normal school and the success rate is higher for 5th and 3rd graders for their average is 97 and 99 % respectively in public certification.
What do you think of this school model? What do you think can we learn or borrow from it?
Watch the following video and then leave your comments.
بدأت مدارس المجتمع في عام ١٩٩٢ في مع اليونيسيف و وزارة التربية والتعليم. استهدفت قرى في صعيد مصر وتحديدا الفتيات هناك .وصلت حاليا الى أكثر من ٤٤،٠٠ طفل ٧٥ ٪ منهم من الفتيات. تكلفة هذه المدرسة تبدو أقل من المدرسة العادية خصوصاً وأن نسبة النجاح لطلاب بها أعلى فقد حصل طلاب الصف الخامس الإبتدائي على متوسط مجموع ٩٧ ٪ وكان متوسط مجموع الصف الثالث إبتدائي ٩٩ ٪ في الشهادة العامة.
ما رأيك في مدارس المجتمع؟ في رأيك ماذا يمكننا أن نتعلم او نأخذ من هذا النموذج ؟

Stage 1 : Discover the power of cascading Style Sheets (css)
Cascading style sheets are used to add themes to the website

How to add a cascading style sheet to your website
- Open google.com
- Browse css templates and download one that you like.
- Make sure that it is copied in the same folder as your project (the css file is beside your html files)
- Add this code in the head section changing only the cssfilename
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="cssfilename.css" media="screen" />
- Repeat steps 4 & 5 in all your html files
