‘Govt must adopt application’
KUWAIT CITY, March 29: Constitutional expert and professor of law at the International College of Law Dr Khaled Al-Huwaila, said distance learning has become a necessity and can be used in crises, pointing out that in light of the conditions the world is going through, including Kuwait in the face of the coronavirus crisis which is working to limit its spread, many countries have resorted to disrupting the study, which has disabled the education facility completely, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
Dr Al-Huwaila in a statement to the daily said there are some countries that have resorted to the idea of distance learning – a way through which the teacher educates the students and communicates with them via the internet and “we believe that in Kuwait it is possible to apply this idea, the idea was actually applied by some private universities.”
He stressed there are no constitutional and legal obstacles to the application of that system, especially that texts in the Kuwaiti Constitution, which are Articles 10, 12, 13 and 14, support such an idea for the continuity and achievement of education to achieve the goals of education. Dr Al-Huwaila said he hopes the State will turn to the application of the distance learning system, and in the worst circumstances, it will have no option but to opt for distance learning.
