The Education Ministry announced in a statement on Tuesday that the Japanese education system Tokkatsu would be applied in 45 Egyptian schools in different governorates, starting this year to 2018.

Hegazy said in a statement to Al-Shorouk newspaper that the Ministry has not yet determined the admission requirements or the expenses of these schools.
