NCF to the Ministry of Education Director General: Promote online learning services in Bedouin villages in the Naqab


In cooperation with the Parents Committees from the Bedouin villages and several civil society organizations, NCF sent a letter to the Director General of the Ministry of Education, Mr. Samuel Abuhav, to request remote/online learning services in Bedouin communities in the Naqab

Today, in most of the Bedouin villages, both recognized and unrecognized, there is no adequate access to internet service and some of the villages are not even connected at all. Many of the villages in the Regional Councils have been denied connection to the national electricity grid. Bedouin families who have computers and online subscriptions are numbered, and the current crisis only deepened huge gaps in education, such as low rates of eligibility for high school diploma, low rates of eligibility for higher education, high dropout rates and more.

Therefore, online studies are extremely important for Bedouin students to realize the completion of the current school year, and in order to prevent massive dropout.
