Al-Bayhani School Still Closed [Archives:2001/48/Local News]

November 26 2001

Security forces prevented students and teachers from entering Sheikh al-Bayhani Religious School after the school administration refused orders from the Education Office to appoint a new principal. Earlier, a resolution was issued by the Ministry of Education to seize the building of the school. In response, the society in charge of running the school has filed a lawsuit at Sura Court for settling the dispute.
The closure of al-Bayhani School comes within the new orientations of the government to merge religious institutes and schools within the general education system run by the government.
