Ahram Online , Sunday 18 Jun 2017

Egypt's Ministry of Education has removed mention of the uprisings on 25 January 2011 and 30 June 2013 from the history class curriculum in the country’s high schools, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported on Sunday.

“The new curriculum follows international standards,” Reda Hegazy, the general director of high school exams and head of the high education sector at the ministry, said at a press conference.

Controversy has risen in recent years over whether recent political events should be included in history curriculums in Egypt’s schools.
