76 new private schools and kindergartens to open up

Supreme Education Council (SEC) has approved the opening of 76 new private schools and kindergartens in the country, revealed Hamad Mohammed Al Ghali Al Merri, Director of Private Schools Office at SEC.

The new applicants have been granted time till June 2013 to complete formalities involving their government bodies and to settle their status with other concerned bodies and health authorities. If they fail to fulfil these requirements by June, their approval will be automatically revoked.

So far 76 applications have been received from nationals to open new private schools and kindergartens, and initial approval has been granted. About 38 private schools have sought permission to hike their fee from next academic year. The deadline for receiving applications ended last month.

SEC further said that no school is permitted to hike fee without written permission from the SEC, and no school will be allowed to increase fee by more than 10 percent. The schools are required to submit details about all types of fee charged over the last three years, he said.

A new law, which will be issued shortly, will take into consideration the feed-back from private schools, Al Marri said.
