During this exciting and unique meeting, students were asked about their aspirations and future desires. They were asked how to manage the educational process and requirements of students and schools. Dr. Barham listened to students’ requests and ideas, and then expressed his pleasure with their ambition and enthusiasm for learning. He also encouraged them to keep dreaming and to take steps to make their dreams a reality.
After the meeting, the students were escorted by Dr. Barham Salih to his office in the cabinet, where he gave them a brief explanation of the work and functions of the Council of Ministers.
