School delaying MoE’s decision on e-education
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.
