One prime cause for the educational problems in Egypt is that the teachers have a very bad financial status from which these teachers taking a very low salary because if this salary compared with their work in classes it will be found that it is nothing. In fact of these circumstances, the teachers stops working and decided to makes a strike. According to Leila r.( 2012) “Teachers are demanding an increase in their salaries to LE4,000 instead of the current LE500, the 200 per cent reward incentives they were promised, in addition to the cancellation of the cadre proficiency exams in which teachers themselves are to be tested.” According to Rasha Ahmed, one teacher on strike, "since we began our protest, officials have been very evasive with us. Promises, promises without any fulfillment are all what we get.” (Cited in Leila r. 2012). The situation is getting worth because this leads a lot of teacher to the road of private lessons in order to get extra money and this is such a bad thing because a lot of students in this country do not have the ability to pay in private lessons. So, it will be found that some of the students will not have the ability to know anything about their educational life.
