Kuwait plans to reopen schools in September


 The Education Committee has agreed to work on a plan for the gradual return of students to schools by September, local media reported.

A source revealed to the daily that the Ministry of Education submitted a comprehensive proposal to the government to reopen schools in April but health authorities rejected the plan due to the spike in cases and low percentage of vaccinated people.

With that being said, the Ministry of Education is seeking approval to allow high school students to conduct their exams in person, especially 12th grade students.

The source pointed out that there is coordination between the Ministry of Health and the respective sectors to come up with an integrated plan for the gradual return of students, as well as taking into consideration the safety of learners and teachers.
