8/16/2015Despite Attempts by Coptic Families to Build School, Government Rejects RequestChristianGovernmentGovernment ActionPrevention of RenovationEducational Institution0000al-FashanBeni SuefEgyptBecause there is reportedly no elementary or middle schools in Ezbet Dos, Absog village in Beni Suef, students must travel at least 1.001 km to attend a school. Because the majority of Ezbet Dos's residents are Coptic, they are harassed by students at the school. Students reportedly hit students who say they are Coptic, allowing Muslim students to remain unharmed. In light of continued harassment, the families of Ezbet Dos and the Church together raised enough money to buy a 1900-meter piece of land upon which to construct a school. After submitting the necessary requests and documentation to the relevant government ministries however, the request was denied. The government stated that it rejected the request because the land was zoned for agricultural uses only. Ezbet Dos's families consider this reason to be pretense because of the fact that many schools in the area are built on agricultural land.http://www.mcndirect.com/showsubject_ar.aspx?id=64009&utm_source=MCNarabic.com&utm_medium=twitter#.VdC9jbJViko
