In a statement, Director of the Educational Activities Department at Ministry of Education, Abdul Salam Shanaq, said the ministry's participation in 2022 ARC project is the "largest," with 2 million male and female students, under the supervision of 7,678 teachers in 3,836 schools countrywide.

This number also includes UNRWA and Za'atari camp schools, he said, adding that arbitration experts from the Ministry of Education's supervising teams work on the participants' evaluation.

During the arbitration days, the evaluation team will move from the southern Aqaba governorate, to the northern Irbid city and finally to capital Amman, to pick up the top 100 participants for the final qualifiers in the Kingdom, he pointed out.

This process, he noted, will determine participants in the reading challenge at Jordan's level, who will represent the Kingdom in the ARC qualifiers in the UAE's Dubai.

For her part, general coordinator of 2022 Arab Reading Challenge project, Ola Badaynah, asked the evaluation team to apply the arbitration criteria, based on scoring system approved by Dubai's ARC.
