KUWAIT CITY, Oct 23: Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education Affairs at Ministry of Education Fatmah Al-Kandari revealed that the ministry has formed teams to visit schools in all educational zones for reviewing documents submitted for admission of children of military personnel, in line with the ministerial decision, reports Al-Anba daily.
Al-Kandari revealed that many Bedoun students were discovered to have been registered in public schools in violation of the ministerial decision, affirming that the ministry will expel the concerned students and send them back to private schools, especially since their education is sponsored through humanitarian funds.
Insisting that the ministerial decision is clear without ambiguity, she said the decision stipulates accepting children of serving or retired military personnel. Al-Kandari explained that the violators went to educational zones at beginning of the semester to submit applications and they got accepted. However, it became clear later that many of them were part of the 1965 census and have not been included in the decision.
Regarding the possibility of children being rejected by private schools since it is not the beginning of the semester, she declared that those who violate rules must be ready to bear the brunt, reiterating that the affected students will be returned to private schools within the next few days.
