    Well done Asmaa!

    However, the change is not only about religious views and acceptance of difference. It is extended to the quality of the students. It is been deteriorating over the past few year. Students are less social, and less educated!

    Thank you, Hany. And I agree with you on the students’ “quality” thing. It was sort of mentioned in one of the soundbites … It is too sad!
