The min­istry is still hir­ing peo­ple in any job it needs re­gard­less of na­tion­al­ity of teacher be­cause “the im­por­tant thing is the pro­fes­sion­al­ism and per­for­mance,” Essa said in a state­ment yes­ter­day. He was re­act­ing to so­cial me­dia ru­mors that the min­istry stopped hir­ing Saudi teach­ers.

Essa ex­pressed ad­mi­ra­tion in the Saudi teach­ers for their pro­fes­sion­al­ism. He ex­plained that there were enough staff in cer­tain school grades and spe­cial­ties, so the min­istry would not hire any per­son from any na­tion­al­ity, even if this per­son was a Kuwaiti cit­i­zen.
