Ab­bas pins hopes on Pales­tinian teach­ers headed to Kuwait

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

RAMALLAH: Pales­tinian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ab­bas ral­lied be­hind a group of teach­ers who are on their way to Kuwait, a na­tion that had heav­ily de­pended on Pales­tinian ed­u­ca­tors years ago. “Kuwait fondly rec­ol­lects Pales­tinian con­tri­bu­tions to ped­a­gogy and the pas­sion with which Pales­tinian in­struc­tors have im­parted their knowl­edge to the peo­ple of Kuwait,” Ab­bas told the con­tin­gent of teach­ers yes­ter­day. He noted that the suc­cess of the ed­u­ca­tors will “open the door for the tri­umphant re­turn of Pales­tinian in­struc­tors to the Gulf re­gion.”“We trust you to carry on the legacy of the Pales­tinian teacher,” Ab­bas said. Af­ter a long hia­tus that kept them away from the country, Kuwait has hired some 180 Pales­tinian teach­ers to join its aca­demic work­force. —KUNA
