Around 900 schools in Kuwait are ready to restart in-person classes in September. Though the government decided to reopen schools in March, the final announcement whether to allow 100 per cent in person classes will be made in August.
The education committee is studying three scenarios: 100 per cent in person classes; a hybrid model where 50 per cent is online, or continue online classes. Children in the 12-15 age group started getting the vaccine as of Sunday.
There are around 1,700 public school teachers stranded abroad. A plan is in motion to bring back 1,500 of them./agencies
