By  | 

Egypt's education minister, along with three Egyptian governors, visited the North Florida Christian School Wednesday.

Right now many schools in Egypt are American-based and accredited through an international arm of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Egypt's government recently set up an accreditation process for the rest.

"There is always an emerging need for providing better quality to education. Also, teachers are looking forward to a better system for their recruitment and also their promotion," said Dr. Yousry El Gamal, Egypt's education minister who also met with education officials in Atlanta and in the United Kingdom.
