‘Replacing expat teachers with Kuwaitis is realistic’

Posted on : Tuesday 29th of May 2018

KUWAIT CITY : The idea of replacing expatriate teachers with Kuwaitis seems realistic now more than ever, seeing the current number of Kuwaiti female teachers, which is enough in achieving the replacement plan, reports Al-Rai daily.

As per a memo sent by Ministry of Education to the Parliamentary Committee on Replacement and Employment Crisis, the case is contrary to that of Kuwaiti male teachers. It noted only 10 Kuwaitis currently teach physics while 20 are teaching chemistry compared to 330 expatriates who teach physics and 333 others teaching chemistry.

It reiterated the Kuwaiti women teaching psychology, philosophy, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, mathematics and English language have increased significantly to almost half the number of expatriate teachers, while their male counterparts who teach the same subjects continue to dwindle in number.

The memo revealed a total of 17,894 people teach those subjects, of which 12,726 are female and the remaining 5,168 are male, affirming Kuwaiti female teachers account for 6,630 of the number and their male counterparts constitute 884.

It revealed Kuwaiti female chemistry teachers even outnumber the expatriates, indicating 206 Kuwaitis are teaching chemistry compared to 205 expatriates, and 636 teach psychology compared to only 4 expatriates. It is worth noting that only one expatriate woman teaches philosophy compared to 257 Kuwaitis.
