Tunis, 18 August 2017:
The Presidency Council’s (PC) education ministry has withdrawn licenses from 107 private schools accusing them of falsifying students’ exam results. These were then presented them to the General Examinations Administration.
The principals of the schools are to be referred to the Attorney General for investigation and possible prosecution. Education minister Otman Abdul Jalil has set up a committee that will present a detailed report on any legal infringements committed by the schools in question. The committee has been given 15 days to publish their findings.
This move follows warnings earlier this month from the ministry to private schools to comply with regulations amid allegations that many were operating comoletely outside the education system. They were given until the end of the month to apply or re-apply for accreditation. In the case of the 107, however, it seems the ministry of education has decided to cut that short.
