The principal claims that the video was taken during a school entertainment day.
A video circulated on social media over the weekend, purporting to show the principal of Hadayek El-Maadi Qawmiya School dancing to shaabi/local music in the school's yard with the students. The video went viral, prompting Cairo's Directorate of Education head Fatma Khedr to refer him to the agency's legal affairs department for investigation, Masrawy reports.
According to Masrawy, the school's principle explained that the video was taken during an "entertainment day" for the students, during which nothing outside the realm of appropriate and good manners occurred. He further assured that entertainment activities constitute an integral part of the education process.
