By : Sadam Al-Adwar - Global Youth Ambassador for Education - Yemen.


Education has a big significance in life of every nation wants progress regardless of its force in the world as it does not guarantee its progress only by education.
Prime Minister Khaled Bahah announced on last Monday that 2015 would be the year of education in Yemen.

In his speech ,during the annual festival for honoring the top high school students for the school year 2013- 2014, PM confirmed the government's commitment to continue to provide the sufficient support for the education sector.

"The immediate objective before us today is to circulate education and make it available for all sons of the Yemeni people so as to achieve the goals of Education for All ", he said.

He pointed to the importance of improving the quality of education and linking it to the needs of economic and social development.
In this regard, the prime minister urged the workers in the educational sector to shoulder their responsibility in this side by seeking to benefit from new and feasible experiences in the educational field.

As Global Youth Ambassador from Yemen I believe education is the answer to the greatest challenges we face as a society, and I find this year for education in Yemen we can work hard to ask leaders to raise budgets, build schools, train teachers and improve learning for all children specially in Yemen .

It has been shown that Over 1 million children are out of school in Yemen and About 30% of students do not have a desk to sit at when in school.
Unless we revert current trends, we will not even achieve The 2nd MDGoal : universal primary education before 2086. 

Yemen is passing through a very critical time where education is facing multi problems as well as the country is facing a lot of conflict issues now a days, so if we want to achieve the strategy of this Year, we must put in our mind that No place in our educational institutions for any political or sectarian affiliation, and we have to work firmly in order to neutralize the education and give attention to talents.

2015 has started therefore we look forward to see the Ministry of Education in Yemen doing its part in developing educational policies, curricula, teaching methods and evaluation methods, and in providing effective professional development for teachers, administrators and educationalist so as to contribute to the education improvement and its outputs.
