More than one Egyptian adviser to the Education Ministry has recently resigned in protest against the appointment of Ahmed Badr as minister in a limited cabinet reshuffle earlier this month.
According to Assistant Education Minister Reda Abu Srie, the resignations "would not affect" the ministry’s plans. "We will continue pursuing our policy of developing schools and curricula," he said.
Abu Srie went on to announce that the ministry intended to freeze all new contracts with foreign advisers until the new minister had a chance to assess their feasibility. "They’re paid too much," he said.
