Kuwait Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Dr. Hamad Al-Adwani has issued a decision regarding the work system and tuition fees in private schools in all their educational systems for the academic year 2022-2023, reports Al-Qabas daily.
The fees for the current year will remain the same without an increase in all Arab and foreign private schools, with the continued validity of Resolution 10/2018 regarding private school fees, in addition to the decision issued in 2020 for schools concerned with people with disabilities, for the academic year 2022- 2023.
Al-Adwani also decided to authorize the Assistant Undersecretary for General and Specific Education to impose appropriate penalties on schools violating this decision, and other decisions issued in implementation or regulation of it, and the decisions regulating the work of private schools.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education has completed direct contracting procedures for renting 200 cars to transport high school exam boxes for the academic year 2022-2023, to and from committees in various educational regions.
The delay in issuing the tender for the means of transferring paper exams to the regulatory authorities is what prompted the ministry to resort to direct contracting, in order for the success of the process of transferring documents on the scheduled date on January 4, and not obstructing the progress of work, according to Informed sources.
The sources indicated that the cost of direct contracting for the provision of these transport vehicles amounted to about 75 thousand dinars during the examination period for the academic period from January 4 to January 16, 2023.
