Tripoli, 28 November 2013:
Zliten Education Department received its first delivery of portable classrooms this week which, it is hoped, . . .[restrict]will help ease overcrowding in schools.
The Tariq ibn Ziyad School in the town is reported by its head, Saeed Addeib, to have over 50 students per classroom. There are other schools in the same situation, he said.
According to Zliten Education Officer, Abdel-Hakim Amer, in a statement on the Education Ministry official website, the education authorities in Zliten hope that student overcrowding in the area will be at least partially resolved by installing portable classrooms in schools, particularly the Tariq ibn Ziyad School. Two were delivered to it on Monday.
Addeib blamed the problem on the population growth. He said that he when the school was built in 2006 it had just six classrooms, but many more are now needed because of the increase in student numbers each year. [/restrict]
