AMMAN — The Council of Ministers on Monday approved the mandating reasons for the 2016 draft education by-law and sent it to the Legislation and Opinion Bureau for endorsement.

The bill is aimed at enabling the Education Ministry to implement the recommendations of the educational development conference, related to school mergers, educational courses, establishing and licensing private educational institutions and holding general exams, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The draft by-law divides secondary education into two branches: the academic one, which consists of the scientific and literary streams, and the vocational branch which consists of streams set by the Education Council.

The bill also identifies the school as an educational institution that covers part of an educational stage, or a stage or more and has more than 100 students who are registered in regular education, Petra added.

The Education Ministry, under the draft by-law, is tasked with granting annual licences to private and foreign educational institutions and renewing them each year according to regulations, in addition to supervising these institutions in a way that guarantees their full commitment to this by-law and other relevant regulations.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet also approved the mandating reasons for the 2016 draft by-law on compensating farmers affected by frost, according to Petra.


In addition, the Council of Ministers approved the 2016 draft by-law for corporate social responsibility, before sending it to the Legislation and Opinion Bureau for endorsement.
