Schools violating the decree will receive a warning letter, which will be followed by suspension if the educational facility continues with the violation, said the decree by Minister of Education Badr Al Essa.
Additional expenses or charges taken unlawfully by violating schools should be returned in accordance with the new decision, reported the Kuwait Times.
Earlier this year, the National Assembly approved a recommendation stipulating that all fee increases by private schools must be suspended immediately until a parliamentary committee reviews the issue with the minister of education.
The recommendation was passed following strong criticism by MPs against a number of private foreign schools that unilaterally raised their fees before obtaining a permit from the ministry.
Essa had said the government accepted the recommendation, adding that the ministry had formed a committee to study the issue of fees at private schools.
