The "Media and Communication Campaign" is funded by the US Agency for International Development's (USAID) Technical Assistance Program. It seeks to introduce the program in the Kingdom, highlight its importance to people, motivate its cadres, and draw students' attention by supporting their parents and teachers.

During the launching ceremony at Ein Jalout Secondary School, Ajarmeh affirmed the importance of the program, saying it will help ease the negative repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic on the education system.

Studies conducted by the ministry and global entities have shown educational gaps among students moving from one class to another, particularly in early grades, he stated.

He said the program, which focuses on Arabic and English languages, mathematics, and sciences might continue for several years. He noted that it will compliment, and be part of the curricula.

Juma Al-Saud, head of the Supervision Department at Ministry of Education, said the program was designed based on studies on fourth to 11th-graders.
