Deputy Prime Minister and Acting Minister of Education and Acting Minister of Higher Education Dr. Abdulmohsen Al-Madaj lauded Thursday private schools' contributions to education, pointing out their "significant" outcomes.
"We are proud to have a distinctive private sector which provides an educational service for students in our country," Al-Madaj stated to reporters after attending a ceremony held by Fajer Al-Sabah School in honor of naming His Highness the Amir humanitarian leader by the UN.
Al-Madaj, also Minister of Commerce and Industry, expressed his gratitude to all who have contributed in organizing the ceremony, pointing out, at the same time, Fajer Al-Sabah's importance in the private education sector in Kuwait, through which hundreds and thousands of graduates held very important posts in the country.
"Private education is a main partner in the educational process," he added, stressing the importance of committing private school owners to safety and security requirements, and not granting licenses to any school which has facilities that do not match safety and security requirements.
The minister also affirmed that all issues regarding private education are being currently discussed at the ministry, adding that these issues are also undergoing serious assessments "in order to preserve everyone's right and guarantee good education for students."
