MANAMA, Bahrain, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Kingdom of Bahrain's education system continues its return to normalcy after a period of duress caused by the protests in recent months. Bahrain's government has also made advances to rectify the nation's business and commerce community which has also been swiftly resuming normal operations. The country's state of national safety will be lifted on June 1 and Bahrain's education system has made notable advances to get back on track. Specifically, The University of Bahrain's (UoB) President Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Janahi noted publicly that all academic and educational activities at the university are moving forward despite the extraordinary circumstances it went through.
"All security measures taken by the university aim to provide a safe educational climate for the students," Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Janahi said to Bahrain News Agency. During the protests, a variety of the university structures and property were defaced or damaged and he added that, "The damage caused to the university and its buildings last March requires examination of identities at the UoB entries."
Explaining the pledge that students on the campus signed, Janahi noted that, "Signing an undertaking by the students is in their interest first and foremost for the university is a national educational edifice which should never derail off this aim due to political motives."
Most recently a number of students have withdrawn from the university; however Janahi describes their enrollment numbers in terms of usual trends. He notes that the recent exit of students has "nothing to do with the security measures taken by the university." Detailing their enrollment he said, "Many students prefer not to study in summer as they like to spend their holiday abroad."
