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?

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 ؟
