The Head of the Religious Education Department at the Ministry of Education, Dr. Fauzi Al-Gharyani has announced the coming back of religious schools starting from next school year (2015/2016).

Dr. Al-Gharyani said that establishing the religious education department was stimulated by the sense of responsibility toward the country and by an honest desire to help in its reform.

"The Ministry of Education has already sent a study to the Salvation Government outlining the importance of taking good care of religious education and pointing out what such an education branch can do in different contexts, especially those of reform, rehabilitation, awareness and fighting ideological divergence," Al-Gharyani added.

He concluded by saying that the Salvation Government authorized the establishment of the religious education to be added to the organizational structure of the Ministry of Education, thus commencing study from the preparatory level at first, then hopefully followed by the primary one.
