Minister of Education and Higher Education Bader Al-Essa said on Saturday that they have hired 414 new teachers for the new academic year, both from Kuwait and abroad.
New expat teachers from Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia are arriving here later this month before the school year kicks off, the minister added in a press statement.
He also mentioned the opening of some new 20 schools, and stated that education is a social issue that requires joining efforts and keeping pace with developments.
The minister noted that he would pay visits to schools to make sure all needs have been provided for at the start of the academic year. He also urged officials at the Ministry of Education to inspect the preparations and arrangements done for the school year.
