KUWAIT CITY, May 1: Some departments and technical offices have called on the Public Education Sector to exclude non-Kuwaiti teachers working in their departments from the replacement (Kuwaitization) plan due to the severe deficit these departments suffer from in some disciplines, especially in schools in far and remote areas, reports Al-Qabas daily. According to informed sources, the Director General for Technical Education Hessa Al-Mutawa addressed the Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education Osama Al-Sultan regarding the male and female expatriate teachers covered in the replacement plan.
She demanded the exclusion of teachers in the subject of art and craft education affiliated with the Ahmadi Educational District, specifically those working in the schools of Sabah Al- Ahmad City and Wafra area, from the replacement plan due to the urgent need for them. Meanwhile, the Department of Special Education alerted the deficit in the educational staff in some disciplines in some schools. In a letter sent to the Coordination Department, it requested the exemption of teachers of Sabah Al-Ahmad City schools affiliated with the department as well as those in the boys school in Erada and Tahaddi Girls School, from the lists of Kuwaitization due to the severe deficit in them, and in the interest of work.
In addition, the Director of the Fahaheel Intermediate School for Boys Suleiman Al-Harbi said, “I am almost certain that a disaster will occur next year in the event that the services of 68 male and female teachers from the best affiliates of religious institutes are terminated. They have been officially informed about the termination of their services for the next year’s plan. Religious institutes teach rich subjects, such as the Qur’an, intonation, interpretation, hadith, biography, jurisprudence, the term hadith, prosody, grammar, rhetoric, literature, logic, and Islamic culture. There are also many new schools that will open next year, and certainly there will be a severe shortage in the event of the dismissal of this huge number of teachers. We therefore hope that the decision-maker will look at this matter with an eye of justice and wisdom, reconsider his decision, and take the opinion of the people in the field, including principals and inspectors, so that there is no breach in the educational process.”
