The association’s president, Fayez Al-Azmi, said in a press conference the day before yesterday at the association’s headquarters in Hawalli Square:

 

"What the ministry has done in depriving the visually impaired of their educational and educational rights and underestimating their distinguished abilities calls for regret. A formal apology must be made for the outstanding students and their families, and the first students from the Al Noor School should be honored and their names published on the Ministry's website."

He added that “blind students have been wronged in the technology and information subject, whereby each student is assigned a score of 10 out of 20, while blind students are exempt from this subject, as is customary, in addition to the fact that they did not study it in the first place, which affected their academic achievement and percentage despite their ability. To study and excel in it.

And he talked about the obstacles facing blind students, including "trying to cancel their braille, which is a way to read and write for them internationally, and replace that with audio recording of study materials, as the Department of Special Education pledged to do without referring to specialists from the blind and the people of the educational field," pointing to "This decision is a clear violation of the Law 8/2010 for the Disabled, which encourages interest in Braille and provides all the requirements for taking care of it."
