Prof. Dr. Mahmoud El-Metini, President of Ain Shams University, pointed out that the organization of the education system has been an issue for years, but it was not completed until President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, President of the Republic, came up. It did not take effect, but now the situation is different. There is a real political will to change university and non-university education. This is reflected in the articles of the constitution.

He added that private universities are safety valves for university education in Egypt, free education is a right for those who deserve, but he needs to reorganize in order to reach science for those who can benefit from it, pointing out that until 1980, after graduating university students can work abroad without needing an equation, and if we want to retrieve this again, we need to re-enter the labels again to put on the global map.

He also talked about on some of the foundations of the control and classification of universities, such as obtaining the Nobel Prize and scientific research, pointing out that private universities are the future because they are not-for-profit universities.

The program included a distinctive participation of a variety of songs from the great singer "Mahmoud Darwish" accompanied by Kunooz music band.
