The Libyan Minister of Education Musa Al-Magaryef confirmed that the new school year will start on schedule: October 16, 2022, according to the Ministry's media office, which added that for the first time in the history of Libya, 1,500 schools will be built across the country as an alternative to old schools, indicating that the Ministry completed an inventory of schools as a first stage and referred them to the government, which referred them to the Apparatus for Development of Administrative Centers.

Al-Magaryef indicated that despite the lack of approval for the budgets, the Ministry had done maintenance in educational institutions in all municipalities, providing different items, including school seats. He also said that the Ministry made efforts to reactivate the school food project in cooperation with the World Food Program and submitted a proposal to the Prime Minister in this regard.

He also said that there should be a school food tax within teachers' salary instead of the Jihad tax, the gun tax, and other meaningless taxes included in the twachers' salary.

Al-Magaryef said that several agreements were signed with a number of friendly countries, including Italy and France, in order to qualify French and Italian language teachers, to teach in a voluntarily manner in secondary schools starting from the next academic year.
