Student attendance falls to 30% in Alexandria schools

Student attendance in the schools of Alexandria has dropped to around 30 percent, with parents afraid to send their children to school due to the lack of security on the streets.

School bus drivers are refusing to collect children because they may not be able to protect them.

“This is an acceptable percentage of attendance, given the current circumstances,” said Mahmoud Abu Emeira, undersecretary in the Ministry of Education.
