AMMAN — Jordan’s education sector is witnessing a lot of challenges, especially with the influx of Syrian refugees that led to classroom overcrowding, Education Minister Omar Razzaz said on Thursday.

During a lecture at the Royal Jordanian National Defence College, Razzaz noted that these challenges gave way to the implementation of double-shift systems at most schools, adding that students’ transfer from private to public schools also contributed to overcrowding. 

The minister reviewed the general framework of the “flexible” educational policies, which enable decision makers to implement them easily depending on the situation, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. In his lecture, Planning and International Cooperation Minister Imad Fakhoury stressed the need for Jordan to shift to self-dependence and changes in the areas of economic and social development.

He stressed the importance of implementing the reform and development plans in accordance with a comprehensive and sustainable manner to ensure their success.
