Somalia’s Minister of Education Abdullahi Arab is in Paris, France to attend an International Conference on the Advancement of Education. The Conference is taking place in Paris, the capital city of France. Delegates from across the World are participating in the conference which is being held at UNESCO headquarters. The Somali minister on the sideline of the Conference held separate meetings with various education officials drawn from across the globe. They deliberated on possible avenues of cooperation and advancement of the education sector in their respective countries. More than two decades of conflict and war have nearly destroyed Somalia's educational system, which is characterized by poor quality, insufficient numbers of qualified teachers, and inadequate resources. The educational deficit in Somalia is one of the most acute in the world.
