Article summary: 

The Egyptian curriculum is littered with Islamic texts and students are exposed to Islamic references in every aspect of their academic education.

Article full text: 

In the third article of the series, Jundī continues to quote from Egyptian school textbooks. The text reveals the Islamic identity of the Egyptian education system.
Jundī wants to support his argument that the Egyptian curriculum imposes Islam and Islamic elements on students and enforces an Islamic point of view in all subjects, even the ones that are not necessarily related to religion. One should in this regard see the studies of Dr. Wolfram Reiss.
