On 25 November, Mr. Mohamed Malainine Ould Eyih, the Minister of National Education and Reform of Educational System, participated, in Nouakchott, via videoconference, in the 12th session of the Conference of Arab Ministers of Education.

In his speech on this occasion, the Minister thanked the Palestinian Government for hosting this session and preparing it thoroughly before reiterating Mauritania's constant position supporting the cause of the Palestinian people and defending their rights to freedom and independence.

He then conveyed to the participants the greetings of the President of the Republic, Mr. Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, and those of the Mauritanian Government and people. He highlighted the role of the Arab League Educational, Cultural, and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) in promoting education in Arab countries.
Mr. Eyih thanked ALECSO for having put its rich expertise at the service of the Arab Ministries of Education, through its initiative linked to remedial education, which is of particular importance in crises and emergencies.

Regarding the case of Mauritania, the Minister indicated that it had adopted a new educational policy intended to mitigate the consequences of the pandemic on the student by establishing a digital platform likely to perpetuate the educational action and securing the transfer of knowledge through distance education techniques.

Regarding the improvement of the quality of our educational system, the Minister explained that the Government had adopted a road map for the reform of the national educational system. He added that such a roadmap takes into account the need for continuity of education during times of crisis, in addition to the creation of a higher advisory council for education.

He then detailed the efforts made by his department to reform our educational system through the organization of broad consultation and the drafting of a reference document called "the school that we want".

He noted that the consultation marked the beginning of the upcoming steps, which will be crowned by a ten-year ministerial plan and an orientation law that defines the outlines of the school desired by all.

Lastly, Mr. Eyih insisted on the imperative need for cooperation between his ministry and its various partners, especially ALECSO, to strengthen efforts to present a quality educational service for our children and to guarantee the continuity of education in times of crisis.
