KUWAIT CITY, March 15: Undersecretary of Education Dr Haitham Al-Athari has issued the final warning to private schools through a recent circular directing all proprietors to demolish prefabricated classrooms before the commencement of academic year 2016/2017, indicating failure to abide by instructions will result in serious consequences.
The ministry will coordinate with Kuwait Fire Service Directorate (KFSD) and Kuwait Municipality to demolish prefabricated classrooms and similar administrative and academic facilities to build permanent concrete structures. He revealed that necessary steps will be taken in that regard after the Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Bader Al-Essa had approved the recommendations of the concerned ad-hoc committee.
Meanwhile, an official source from the Ministry of Education was quoted as saying Civil Service Commission (CSC) is ready from now until March 28 to receive complaints from those whose holidays to study for graduate exams were canceled. He indicated the affected people have been submitting complaints since last Thursday, in view of the fact that the decision violates the constitution and has caused them serious moral and material damages.
Meanwhile, about 200 individuals, who graduated from Kuwait University (KU) and Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET), have applied for cultural attaché posts in different parts of the world, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources from the Ministry of Higher Education. Sources disclosed nine cultural attaché posts are currently vacant – Los Angeles, Washington, Paris, Canberra, Cairo, Dublin, Oman, Riyadh and Dubai. Sources explained the first phase of the application process includes assessment of documents followed by interviews. Sources said the committee tasked to interview the applicants will submit names of those who passed to the Cabinet for approval.
