The Seventh Annual Conference of Private Schools, entitled " Educational Policies and their Impact on Arab Communities", kicked off at the Dead Sea on Saturday.
The conference, which is organized by the Association of Owners of Private Schools, aims to encourage educational development, ensure the continuation of implementing constructive educational policies, and improve the educational environment through modernizing school programs and curricula to keep pace with development in the educational field.
It also seeks to coordinate policies among private educational institutions and boost cooperation between them.
