Student’s father sues education minister
KUWAIT CITY, Sept 6: The father of an elementary student (Grade Six) filed a lawsuit against the minister of education at the First Instance Court through Attorney Jassem Al-Tuwaitan.
He demanded for KD1,001 temporary compensation for material and moral damages caused by the Ministry of Education’s failure to fully prepare for the opening of the new academic year.
Al-Tuwaitan revealed that on Sept 3 the son of his client was in school when he found out the air conditioning units are not functioning, in addition to the breakdown of water cooling machines. He added the student felt exhausted due to the situation.
He stressed his client’s claim was confirmed by the defendant’s statement published on Sept 5 announcing that there will be no classes on Sept 9 due to the air conditioning problem in schools. He argued the minister confirmed his negligence through this press statement.
