KUWAIT CITY, Sept 17: Ac­cord­ing to re­li­able sources from the ed­u­ca­tional sec­tor, the Ira­nian School of Kuwait has been de­lay­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s de­ci­sion No. 60/2020 which re­quires all Arab and for­eign pri­vate schools to com­plete the sec­ond se­mes­ter of pre­vi­ous aca­demic year 2019/2020 via dis­tance learn­ing, re­ports Al­jarida daily.

They ex­plained that the school re­peat­edly re­quested the of­fi­cials of the Pri­vate Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­tor to al­low its stu­dents to re­sume study­ing in­side its build­ing un­der the pre­text that the Ira­nian ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem pro­hibits dis­tance learn­ing. How­ever, its re­quests in this re­gard were re­jected.

The Pri­vate Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­tor has taken nec­es­sary mea­sures against the school in ac­cor­dance with the rules and reg­u­la­tions, which even­tu­ally prompted the school to abide by the min­istry’s de­ci­sion and start the process of com­plet­ing the school year for its stu­dents re­motely ac­cord­ing to the ap­proved plan.

The school will is­sue cer­tifi­cates to stu­dents who are ex­pected to grad­u­ate in the fi­nal year within the next few days, based on the eval­u­a­tion pro­ce­dures and con­trols ap­proved by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion.

The sources af­firmed that the of­fi­cials of the Pri­vate Ed­u­ca­tion Sec­tor in the min­istry have been fol­low­ing up the progress of the ed­u­ca­tional process in all pri­vate schools through pe­ri­odic in­spec­tion rounds.
