Vocational and Technical Education Minister Qassum Mokhtar gave the opening for the new academic year. “Indeed, we could see that the school has reopened. The most important thing is that wherever we go, the administration is there, teachers and students are there, which confirms that we are on the right track in our struggle to change the education system,” he said.
