An imminent solution is in the offing for the ongoing crises that plagued the Indian Community School Kuwait since more than a month. The former Board of Trustees seem unlikely to return back to the school after allegations of corruption and misconduct saw their dismissal by the sponsor and an committee set up to investigate all allegations.
The former board who have taken to legal recourse seem to have lost favour with all the parties concerned and efforts are on to set up a new board with a good governance structure that will be transparent to the entire community.
The long felt need of the vast community members to seek a proper and professional governance structure will finally take place as all the concerned parties involved in the best interest of the school have initiated their efforts to seek a solution to the crises that erupted last month.
The sponsor of the school has decided to hand over the control to a new board that will be more transparent in their functioning. Investigation of all past allegations will however continue as the community is very keen that guilty be punished.
Indian Ambassador H E Sunil Jain has received several representatives from the community seeking his intervention to resolve the crises. Ambassador Jain, however has been circumspect and cautious in his approach to ensure that any solution to the crises be long term and in the best interest of the students and teachers.
The Indian Community School Kuwait is the largest and oldest Indian school in the region with more than 6800 students having four branches all over Kuwait.
