Education and the Arab Spring Chapter uri icon


  • The scale of the demand and need for teachers' continuing education, if the goal of Egypt education system is to achieve education with high quality, has far outstripped existing provision. Educational quality is the main issue that the Egypt education system aims to achieve; however, education quality has not been achieved due to the lack of effective teacher in-service education. In order to explore the influence of Arab Spring on in-service teacher education, we explored in-service teachers perceptions on teacher professional development programs provided prior and post-Arab Spring. Six high school teacher leaders in Egypt were interviewed to answer the research questions. The teachers responded pessimistically toward the revolution as to its impact on teacher professional development in Egypt.
