Muhammad Ali

Today at work, someone was talking about the achievements of Muhammad Aliwhen he ruled Egypt (not Cassius Clay by the way). He was talking about how Muhammad Ali had reformed education and tried to transfer Egypt into a modern nation. I admit that I’ve lost the knowledge I previously gained about Egyptian and world history through the primary/seconday education (talking about education reform!). Or is it really true that one’s mind cann’t keep info for more than 10 years.

Anyways, I should try to read more about History – I feel I’m missing something.
