KUWAIT CITY, Sept 5: After a barrage of parliamentary queries and MPs putting political pressure on Minister of Education and Higher Education Minister Hamed Al-Azmi on the frequent breakdown of air conditioning units in several public schools, it seems the government decided to cooperate in addressing the issue.
MP Omar Al-Tabtabaei disclosed that he met the minister who assured him the problem will be solved within this week and everyone at fault will be held responsible. This was later followed by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak calling on all officials, managers and teachers at the ministry to quickly solve problems in public schools.
The statement was issued after a meeting with Al-Azmi, his undersecretary and other officials at Bayan Palace where all issues which hinder day to day operations were tackled.
His Highness the Prime Minister affirmed that the welfare of students is a priority for the government and it will not tolerate any delay in maintenance of facilities or ensuring all schools are fully prepared to receive students.
