I haven’t read or heard that such a thing happened anywhere else in this world at least not in the past 20 years. You can only imagine that such thing might be happened in the dark ages but not in the year 2008 and not in a poor country such as Jordan.
According to the Middle-East online some rich Jordanian students are demanding that their university become accessible only to them by increasing the tuition. Otherwise, god forbids, both poor and rich students will be in the same room. Imagine how weak the quality of learning will be if poor and rich students studied in the same place.
The article is in Arabic but here are some excerpts:
- Rich students demand an increase in the tuition to prevent the poor from entering their university.
- The poor, according to statistics, make about 77% of the population of Jordan.
- Jordan is one of the poorest countries in the world in natural resources, industrial and economic development.
- College education is one of the greatest challenges facing the Jordanian families.
I wonder where those students live to think that education is exclusive to some wealthy people?!
I hope this thing is just another rumor and not true.
