Minister praised for tackling ‘cheating mafia’ in schools

Posted on : Monday 14th of May 2018

KUWAIT CITY : Several lawmakers expressed satisfaction with the procedures initiated by the Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Hamid Al-Azemi to counter the ‘cheating mafia’ that threatens the entire education sector, reports Al-Shahed daily.

MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei declared he’s solidly behind the minister in his effort to sanitize the system to wipe out the cheating mafia making waves in secondary schools, noting some principals and vice principals of those schools were in charge of operations while senior officials in the ministry were afraid of challenging the mafia, which endeavored to destroy the system.

He urged concerned authorities to stand firm against the mess that weakens the entire education sector, and craved stricter level of monitoring during exams.

He reiterated a review of data from one secondary school reflected the real percentage of success, which involved no more than 24 percent of the students.

Meanwhile, Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education Affairs at Ministry of Education Fatima Al-Kandari affirmed that the new decisions aim at combating illusory education and protecting hard working students, reports Al-Qabas daily.

She said combating malpractice is part of the fight against corruption, stressing that the ministry is preparing for the final exams by spreading awareness among the students about the culture of examinations and the organized bylaws. Al-Kandari denied the exaggerated figures concerning deprivation of students because of malpractice, affirming that the percentage of deprivation is few compared to the number of testers for grades 10 and 11.

Meanwhile, high-level sources revealed that Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Hamid Al-Azmi met with Al-Kandari, directors of six educational zones and director of Religious Studies Institute to discuss the recent sit-in conducted by students. During the meeting, the minister stressed the need to avoid abusing students and giving students enough chance to perform the test.
