Ministry concerned about booming Private tuition business in the country



Latest News

Minister of Education Dr Nayef Al Hajref has asked ministry leaders to study appropriate steps to end the menace of private tutoring and come up with a mechanism to arrest teachers who deployed this method to make a quick buck and have turned it into a business. According to Kuwait Times daily, the minister was surprised at the large sums being spent in the sector.

The annual budgetary spending on teaching has reached around KD 1.3 billion as per a study, the figure almost touching the total budget allocation for the ministry which is pegged at KD 1.6 billion.

Sources said Al-Hajref asked ministry leaders to study the real reasons behind the all pervasive culture of private tutoring even when the ministry provides all necessary facilities for education.

easy to pass comments, but always look at the ground reality. Put your self as one of the parents i.e. working parents. Are all parents professional tutors, are all childrend like albert elstine, look at your five fingers they are not same. Education level is not same like yesterday, it has gone far up, i.e. check the kids protion in LKG and UKG. Is time sufficient in schools to finish the portion? Are salery paid well for teachers? In india teachers are paid min. 30,000. Please note we are in kuwait and some parents are working 12-14 hours a day. There is lot which if I write may end writting noval on Tutions Good or Bad in Kuwait.

tuitions are required for the really weak ones who cannot compete with brilliant . But it shouldnot be pandemic to make another source of money. Regarding the Indian schools nothing can change until the Kuwait govt takes more control over them.

The teachers are paid KD 175 salary. Even if they are paid more they will not put sincere efforts to make sure that the Child is learning. The teachers should change the attitude first of all. The child is in the school during the best hours of his day. This is the time when teachers should make them good citizens with good moral and right teaching. When this is absent in the teachers they make students as their victims. Make the student study in the school. Stop tuitions completely. One tuition teacher staying in the building of Oxygen Saloon smokes in front of the student. Another teacher starts her teaching business from 5 in the morning. Each batch has atleast 10-15 students. Atleast 10 batches. KD 25 per child. Location near classic, abbasiya. Poor parents have no other go. God let this menance end.
Strict action should be taken

Indians Teacher complain that they get less salary..I do not think it is the student or parent problem..becoz all Indian schools prinicipals regular increase fees every year inside all salmiya schools.
Class teacher & subject teacher do not take interest in teaching in class and therefore everything is taught in private at home and also giving the exact question paper for their exams.to those tution students .These teachers in school comes as dependant housewife visa and then do a further study in private school in salmiya (not reconized university-like Osamina,MG.university etc) for 1 year and then you find these teachers are become M.phil, M.ED and what not & get jobs easily in Indian schools by influence ..when you actually speak & confabulate with these South Indian especially Kerala teachers their pronouncing of english language is very amazing & Awesome.and then make good money -buy property and not forgetting first to buy "PRADO" 6 cylinder Jeep.. At the end my child learns additional Malayam language as an added qualifications.... Hat off --teachers good job..you are better professional corrupted that Indian Politican''''Parent what you think any action should be taken yes /No.

The tuition is a reality. whether it is Arabic schools running with govt. support or Indian schools, which are self financed. It is also a matter of fact that without tuition people cannot score marks in higher classes. The class room teachings are so poor and students used to sleep in some classes (I am not joking). one of my children completed 12th and based on the experience I can say that sending children to schools are of no use at all. Only for timepass and enabling registration to CBSE we need to sent children to school. This fact is applicable to almost all Indian schools.

In every school there are one or two teachers per subject famous/most wanted for tuition. Even other teachers are jealous of the lucky ones. It is easy to identify the most wanted and conduct raid at one or two places and deport then the entire tuition business will come to a halt. For information some teachers are making 3000KD/month or more from tuition alone.

Guys it is a wrong interpretation. The 1.3 Bil spending is for the Arabic schools in Kuwait and not for expat schools. Expat schools are entirely managed by their revenues and no subsidy from any Govt agency. Even the premises are rented from private owners. Yes I do agree that tuition menace does exists, but where doesn't it? The menace is much more rampant in India, coaching classes are mushrooming in every nook and corner. Students from this part of the world do not stand a chance against their counterparts back in India to secure admissions through merit in IITs or medical courses. And as pointed out by someone, teachers are paid paltry amounts, which pushes them into this business. But such practice does exist in India as well. Why fret about it.

The MoE talking about the teachers in MoE, and not the one in private schools. MoE is giving a good salary to their teachers, but private schools are paying the maid salary or less than that to their teachers. How a teacher can sustain with a KD. 150/- per month, that also in some schools are paying for 10 months in a year??? So the school management is the main cause for private tuitions.

All parents are concerned about their children future. Most of the expatriates try to fill their bank accounts leaving their children brain empty....imagining they can get seat for professional courses with the money earned...but when you are financially stable and understand your child can improve with a little extra support, there is no harm in sending them for tuition. At the same time, strict action should be taken if any teacher forcefully tell some student to attend for the tuition. There is a clear difference when a child sits with less group of children and getting personal attention instead of 30 or 40 students in the class.

Having stated the above, I am dead against the tuition, but all the children don't have the same IQ......

Yes, I agree with what most of you have written below but I feel there is no thing bad in sending our children for tuitions .when we send our children for tuitions we are sure atleast that they are studying everyday,if our children are at home they are always on the net , mobile or front of the TV .so why dont we look at tuitions as a positive steep towards studies and proper future

Guys, dont get excited.I dont think this is not about Indian schools.The minister was talking about Arab schools.Please note that "when ministry provides all facility for education"...the budget allocation they talk about, is the money spent by ministry in ministry schools for free education.Where do the ministry spend for Indian schools?? But the fact is also relevant for Indian schools.If ministry makes sure better salary for Indian teachers, they can ban tuition.But they can not ban, as they dont pay for Indian teachers.BTW, i am also a parent, not a teacher.Teachers salary should be hiked, and tuition should be banned.

At last I am happy the Ministry has looked into this issue. I agree that Teachers are paid less. But the point is as a Teacher he/she is supposed to teach well in school and not force the students to come to their house for tutions. The dedication should be there from the teacher to put his best effort to make students understand the subject. How come the same teacher who does not teach well in school teach in Tution class? Strict action should be taken against people giving tutions.

Thanks God atlast ministry of education opened their eyes. First start to check Abbassiya area. each & every building there will get 3/4 teachers. in school they are working for name sake. somebody comments their salary is very less. but office people are getting less than their salary that is also for 8 hrs duty or more. because of this tuitions childrens will get more stress & spoiling their habits. some school they seperating boys & girls,but same teachers giving tuitions together.

Why are parents sending their children for tuitions, we should think that first nowadays parents are so busy making money for themselves so they have to send their children out for tuitions if parents give enough time for their children there is no need for tuitions I fell. First ask parents to sit with their children lesson then comment please

Very well said by everybody that tution money spend behind kids is huge....but to the other side of coun when we see can you agree that teachers are paid so less with a salary of just KD175 which is so less n how they may be surviving with their families n kids. As to cope up with their expenses to survive in this country they need to take tutions to actually cover up the cost of living. if school increases fees parents grumble so how will the teachers salary will be raised. its a big question mark for the society....

It is true. Some teachers dont teach well in schools, and they ask students to come for tution. Some teachers threaten students by saying that they will cut internal marks. Because of internal marks students and parents, are not dare to talk to teachers even in PTA meetings. No solution. Some schools, even principals are also supporting teachers.

You know, Some higher secondary teachers giving the real question paper to their tuition kids in advance, to let them market their tuition activities. It is happening in one of the most reputed Indian school in Kuwait located in South Khaitan.

Yes the above statement is correct ,when ministry is providing all facilities why tutions again...I dint understand this tutions formula from my child hood ..Becasue when we are paying thousands of rupees and dinars to schools to educate our kids then why tution...that mean the schools are not upto the mark...and one more great thing the same teacher in the school will call for the tutions and the who ever go to her tutions he wil get good marks thats it .....
