Nablus, 16 Jumadil Akhir 1434/ 25 April 2013 (MINA) – Dr. Hussam al-Ahmad, A Palestinian teacher who spent 22 years working in the United States has decided to open an educational academy in Nablus which will follow the US school curriculum.
“My dream is coming true, I always wished to see our children educated the American way and we finally got permission from the education ministry and all the materials will be imported from the US and lectured in English, except for the Arabic and Islamic religion classes,” Al Ahmad told to Maan News agency as quoted by Mi’raj News Agency (MINA), Thursday morning (25/4).
International teachers will work at the academy, which will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Al-Ahmad said that he chose to open his academy in Nablus because it is one of Palestine’s largest cities.
He hopes to open other branches across the West Bank and raise the level of education in Palestine to the highest level possible, he told Ma’an.
Art, languages, singing, yoga, dance, sports and research will be offered throughout the semester in addition to other educational activities, he added.
The academy will have a capacity of 300 students and is due to begin classes in September. (T/P06/E1)
