She said the redistribution of teachers is necessary to correct previous mistakes. She added she is personally following up the distribution process to ensure fairness and address problems in this regard. She went on to say the department has been interviewing senior officials in educational districts; as well as sport instructors for kindergarten, elementary, intermediate and secondary schools, to discuss with them the budget for supervisory positions in each school. She added the department will soon issue about 700 decisions to promote instructors, school managers, assistant managers and heads of departments. She said the officials have been holding meetings with managers of religious institutes and directors of academic affairs in educational districts to deliberate over budgets for teachers in each of the schools.
