The Ministry of Education will relieve 200 expatriate teachers working in supervisory positions at the beginning of the second semester and after the end of the mid-year vacation, reports Al- Anba daily.
The move comes as part of the ministry’s plans to Kuwaitise supervisory positions. Al Anba newspaper reported that these jobs will be given to Kuwaitis who are waiting for their turn to be promoted.
The sources explained that expats will return to their previous jobs as teachers, adding that there are many Kuwaitis who passed the promotion interviews successfully several years ago.
“We must make way for them to advance and not hinder their ambitions and achieve their goal in serving the educational process,” said the education sources.
