Dr. Abdul-Salam al-Jawfi, Minister of Education, said in press statements early this week that the Ministry would submit its final report on religious schools census to this week's Cabinet meeting. “The ministerial committee set up by the Cabinet to count and follow-up religious schools has recorded some 4 thousand violating religious establishments. They are not educational schools and are not related to Yemen's education. They are mere dens outside the power of the educational process,” he added. He pointed out that these schools disseminate certain issues generating malpractices that harm the nation, and jeopardize its security, stability and unity.
