724) The Road to Hell & the Good Intensions!

The Road to Hell is paved with Good Intensions..1855 H. G. Bohn

I remember this quote everytime I read about something Dr.Ahmed Zaky Badr does or says. This man is saying a lot of stuff that makes good sense and really need to be implemented to save our sinking and stinking Educational "System". However, everytime he decides upon changing it, he chooses the worst tactic that just lead to more and more problems.

Some quick examples:
Teachers and Students have to be attending school from first to last day.... For sure, but The Schools have to be clean, fixed, and equipped first in order to make this happen... Why do you start by the result and leave the cause.
Teachers and Students should use the school book and syllabus to study and train... Of course, but when the school book is well prepared, organized, understood, ...etc as some of the external books do, then you can prohibit the use of them and only use the school book (i'd rather call reference book).
Teachers should not be delivering private lessons...Can't agree more, but do people have a real option, do they have reasonable class sizes, enough teachers, do teachers get tempting salaries...etc?

What I wanna say is that if he only focused on the infrastructure of the Educational System for the next 2 years, it will automatically develop, people will be less resistant to change, and your job will be much easier than in implementing your development strategies, but I am afraid that after couple of years from now all what we remember is your continuous fights and appearance in all sorts of media.

Education is our Nation's most serious challenge and a double-sided weapon that can be the reason for our development OR our mass destruction in the near future.

مصر فى مهب الريح

فى خلال الثلاثين عاما الماضية تعرضت مصر الى حملة منظمة لنشر ثقافة الهزيمة بين المصريين, فظهرت أمراض اجتماعية خطيرة عانى ومازال يعانى منها خمسة وتسعون بالمئة من هذا الشعب الكادح . فلقد تحولت مصر تدريجيا الى مجتمع الخمسة بالمئه وعدنا بخطى ثابته الى عصر ماقبل الثورة .. بل أسوء بكثير من مرحلة الاقطاع.

1- الانفجار السكانى .. وكيف أنها خدعة فيقولون أننا نتكاثر ولايوجد حل وأنها مشكلة مستعصية عن الحل.
2- مشكلة الدخل القومى .. وكيف يسرقونه ويدعون أن هناك عجزا ولاأمل من خروجنا من مشكلة الديون .
3- مشكلة تعمير مصر والتى يعيش سكانها على 4% من مساحتها.
4 – العدالة الاجتماعية .. وأطفال الشوارع والذين يملكون كل شىء .
5 – ضرورة الاتحاد مع السودان لتوفير الغذاء وحماية الأمن القومى المصرى.
6 – رئيس مصر القادم .. شروطه ومواصفاته حتى ترجع مصر الى عهدها السابق كدولة لها وزن اقليمى عربيا وافريقيا.

احنا كلنا ابناء وطن واحد نصارى ومسلمين، ومفيش حد فينا ملوش جار أو صديق مسيحي والعكس بالعكس ويوم ما بتحصل كارثة مش بتفرق بين مسيحي ومسلم. ثم ان القرآن نص على ان اقرب الناس مودة للذين آمنوا النصارى

ALL Wut you said is definitely true but it needS JUST A STRATEGIC MENTALITY LIKE YOURS OR EVEN MUCH MORE DEEPER so as to Focus ON THE CAUSE & you'd never find a lot of ppl having such way of thinking or such strategic mentalities and they'll always tend to look at the Result.

The thing I hate the most about him is that he's considering the relationship between the ministry and the teachers / students as an eye-to-eye relationship. He is obliged to FIRST provide whatever is needed from his side, THEN he can hold people accountable. Elli beye3melo dah shoghl 3arbageyya IMO.
