Palestinian educators arrive for academic school year in Kuwait

Nov. 4, 2018 12:49 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 5, 2018 2:15 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ambassador to Kuwait, Rami Tahboub, welcomed 70 Palestinian teachers, who were contracted by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Education, upon their arrival in Kuwait and wished them success, on Saturday.

The 70 Palestinian teachers were the second batch to travel to Kuwait after being contracted by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Education out of the besieged Gaza Strip for work in the education sector in Kuwait.

The first batch consisted of 37 teachers from the occupied West Bank and had arrived in Kuwait last week.

This is the second year in a row in which Kuwait recruited Palestinian teachers to work in its education sector.

A Kuwaiti delegation, which travelled to the West bank and Gaza, recruited over 100 teachers in 2017 and a similar amount this year. The Palestinian teachers were contracted mainly in the math and science section.

Palestinian teachers have contributed a great deal towards Kuwait’s development during its early years and were important instruments in building its education system.

During Tahboub’s visit to the headquarters of Ma'an News Agency in Bethlehem City, he mentioned that Qatar has also started the process of recruiting Palestinian teachers and believes that this may extend to other Arab countries due to the high efficiency of Palestinian teachers and the excellence of education provided by them.
