KUWAIT CITY, Aug 21: Ministry of Education has suspended the admission of the Bedoun students in government schools until further notice, reports Al-Anba daily.
According to informed educational sources, all educational zones have ended the admission procedures for Bedoun students to join in their schools due to high student density. Educational zones are refusing to receive guardians and asked them to visit the ministry.
Even though Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Hamad Al- Azmi had given instructions to facilitate the admission of students of this category within the framework of the applicable bylaws and some students have been admitted after receiving a written approval from the minister, the educational zones are refusing to register the students.
The sources followed up this matter with the Public Education Sector of the ministry and were informed that there are no vacant seats currently in the schools. They indicated that the ministry advised the guardians to register their children in private schools “due to circumstances beyond our control”.
